Rotarians from clubs across Cape Town spent Sunday, 18 August 2019, bringing joy and laughter to Cape Town’s intellectually disabled community at the annual One to One event held at Cape Town Stadium. Rotary clubs were joined by local schools, Lions Clubs and other civic organisations and the day’s entertainment included drum majorette displays, bands, food stalls and of course, lots and lots of games!
Newlands Rotary members took photos of attendees and printed them as a memento of their day out, while the Rotary Club of Tygerberg ensured everyone enjoyed a lovely ice cream while they were browsing the games stalls. Other Rotary clubs who managed stalls on the day included: Rotary Clubs of Constantia, Blouberg, Table Bay, Sea Point, Groote Schuur, Bellville, Century City, Strand, Melkbos, Durbanville, Cape of Good Hope (Fish Hoek) and Cape Town. Many of the clubs invited their local school Interact clubs and Rotaract Clubs (Rotary members 18 – 30 years) to assist on the day.
“One to One is one of our favourite days of the year,” says Newlands member, Shelley Finch. “It is wonderful to spend a few hours playing games and entertaining this beautiful community of people every year and there are often quite a few moist eyes around the venue thanks to the whoops of laughter and smiles that we are rewarded with.”
