Covid-19 tribute

Oct 19, 2020 | Covid-19, Projects

The Covid epidemic has prevented the Rotary Family Health Days from taking place this year. As a result, the Rotary Club of Kenton on Sea decided that it would be appropriate to pay tribute to the front line workers in our community.

Many of our members spent the morning packing cake boxes with treats which were then delivered to our health workers in the clinics at Ekuphumleni and Marselle, the carers at Dolphin Coast Frail Care and the staff at our local SAPS.

All of these people have given a great deal to keep us as safe as possible, for which we thank you most sincerely.

To our amazing Doctor and her staff, as well as to several other individuals who have made a significant contribution – there’s something coming your way, too!
