THINK­ING OF YOU: Res­i­dents of the Buf­fels­fontein Re­tire­ment Vil­lage were treated to an early Christ­mas cel­e­bra­tion by Mag­netic Storm yes­ter­day and used the op­por­tu­nity to thank Nel­son Man­dela Bay res­i­dents for spon­sor­ing more than 200 panic but­tons for the el­derly who can­not af­ford it. The vil­lage was rocked by two rob­beries, a week apart, in Novem­ber. Al­goa Bay Coun­cil for the Aged CEO Mau­reen An­dreka said the coun­cil was grate­ful for the gen­er­ous re­sponse. Res­i­dents of­fered to spon­sor panic but­tons, at R22 a month, for six months and a year. Within a week the vil­lage re­ceived al­most R50,000 in do­na­tions to im­prove se­cu­rity. An­dreka said the coun­cil was also proud of the res­i­dents who are rais­ing funds to pay for the se­cu­rity gates at their flats. Mag­netic Storm hosted a func­tion to dec­o­rate the Christ­mas tree at the vil­lage and res­i­dents were also treated to some Christ­mas car­ols sung by Niqui Cloete-Bar­rass. Si­mamkele Kol­wapi of Mag­netic Storm also handed out treats to res­i­dents. She is seen here with Nova van Niek­erk
