Three teams from Old Mutual were recently “admitted” to Valkenberg to help the Friends of Valkenberg get reading for Christmas at the hospital.
The teams wrapped gifts, prepared party food and contributed to the cost of the activities which form part of a recovery programme that ensures that people in hospital over this period do not feel forgotten and remain connected to what is happening in their communities.
The teams also assisted prepare the “Friendly Shop” for the Christmas sale, which was a great hit amongst patients and staff the following week. The Shop forms part of the skills development project runs by Friends, where people with mental illnesses are able to learn retail and food services skills.
Thanks to Old Mutual for their gift of joy to the people at Valkenberg.
