Tarentaal retirement village resident Yvonne Butts is knitting teddies for the people living with dementia at nearby Ron Smith Care Centre. Both the village and care centre are run by 116-year-old NPO Rand Aid. Yvonne has already completed seven beautiful teddies and hopes to extend the project to her neighbours, residents of other Rand Aid retirement villages and to the community at large. The project was initiated by Rand Aid social worker Ulricka Beukman (left), who is pictured with Yvonne.
