2015 drew to a close with the highlight of our events calendar, namely the Iris House Family Year End Picnic taking place at our hospice building on the 13th of December. Over 180 family members, friends, staff and volunteers joined us for a day of fun in the sun.
We had a huge surprise when “Santa” Rotarian Robert Pritt presented Iris House with a cheque for R14,000.00 from his Rotary Club in the UK.
Highlights also included a visit from Minister Donald Grant, who was extremely impressed with the progress we have made in only 11 months.
The children loved the pony rides, Santa’s Grotto, roaming magicians, a jumping castle, two paddling pools, snack stalls and the hearty lunch. Our family’s left tired but happy with gifts and food hampers tucked under their arms.
What a wonderful way to finish the year!
