The Malabar Home for the Aged has been selected as the beneficiary of the Algoa Cares Charity Golf Day, that will be happening at the PE Golf Club on Friday 7 April 2017. “After meeting many of the residents and becoming familiar with the diversity of their backgrounds and current needs, the decision to donate funds to help renovate the home to accommodate additional residents was made,” says PR and CSI Manager at Algoa FM, Dohné Damons.

The Chairman of the Malabar Home for the Aged, Mogan Segadavan, is a retired school teacher whose accolades include, winner of the 2016 Senior Citizen of the Year award, in the age category 71-79, and being named a finalist in the Herald GM Citizen of the Year. “The Malabar Home for the aged is regarded as one of the best frail care homes in the Metro. The decision to restore and restructure parts of the building was made because of the urgent need for space. There is a waiting list of people who wish to be accommodated by the home. Some more urgently than others, and this is why the renovation is extremely necessary,” says Mogan Segadavan.

Music through the ages has been named the theme of this year’s Algoa Cares Charity Golf Day. Sponsors are encouraged to theme their designated areas as music through the ages. “Theme it as the classics, or with what’s hot right now. Be inspired by the music that you love and design your area accordingly,” says Dawn Hendricks, Marketing Coordinator at Algoa FM. The most creative sponsor will stand the chance of winning R20 000 worth of generic advertising airtime on Algoa FM.
