The elderly residents of Fanie Stoltz Retirement Village in Graskop received a surprise visit from the local police on March 16th.

The visit was conducted by two Sergeants, Rose Masilela and Wilson Kok, who was evidently committed to putting smiles on faces.

Graskop SAPS said that the visit was part of a reach-out campaign to the vulnerable members of the community, including the Emmanuel Children’s Home.

“We received a generous donation of new clothes such as blouses, t-shirts and skirts from Graskop Ackerman’s. We decided to share the clothes amongst the elders and the vulnerable members of our community. We want them to feel that they have our protection and support at all times,” said Graskop SAPS.

One of the elders at the retirement village said that they were very thankful for the gesture, as displayed by Graskop SAPS.

“We would like to thank our local police station for their kindness, we really appreciate it,” said the elder.

The visit was also extended to the elders in Glory Hill, such as Norah Mitchell. She was very appreciative for the compassion, as expressed by the local police.

Graskop SAPS said that the station will continue to embark on various campaigns that involve the community, to illustrate the commitment to serve and protect all residents of the town.
