To commemorate Women’s Day, Artic Driers partnered with Dr Tina Hollinshead and Storm’s Decadent Delights to provide some goodies to residents of The Whole of the Moon Old Age Home on 9 August.
Humanitarian heroes take up the call to improve the welfare of others. Giving back to the community is a business value that drives Artic Driers. It is for this reason that the company went out of its way on Women’s Day to pamper some elderly ladies residing at the The Whole of the Moon Old Age Home in Benoni.
The company, in partnership with Dr Tina Hollinshead and Storm’s Decadent Delights, delivered a gift bag and cupcakes to each of the residents at the old age home. The gift bag contained some facial products, creams, nail files, earrings and a mirror.
“It was our way of giving back to the community and make these ladies feel special during Women’s Day,” says Paul Cockfield, operations manager at Artic Driers. “A total of 18 residents received the gift bags and cupcakes. Additional cupcakes were given to the valued staff members that care for these ladies.”
Cockfield says there are many charities and organisations that look after disadvantaged/abused women, but the elderly are often overlooked. “Many of the ladies had not had any visitors for quite some time as some of the families have emigrated, and others could not visit due to COVID-19,” he says.
