A while back our Independent Living residents were treated to a surprise visit from the Rhino Ladies Rugby Team all the way from the USA! Vonke House buzzed with excitement as the team shared jerseys, exchanged gifts, and cherished precious moments with our residents. What’s truly heartening is that these connections didn’t end there—WhatsApp became a bridge, allowing ongoing communication and nurturing of these newfound friendships.
The immense joy and positivity from this encounter encouraged not just a return visit but an expansion! This time, it wasn’t just the Rhino Ladies; the Cape Town Wild Dogs and the Honey Badgers joined in, spreading their warmth to the Support Centre, Mountview, Silver Oaks Lodge, Robari Lodge, and a return to Vonke House! Laughter, songs, and a rugby-themed twist on “pass-the-parcel” filled the air, making each moment unforgettable.
A special nod of gratitude goes to Pepsi Combrinck, a cherished HSFA resident and the mother of Rhinos Rugby Academy director, Ryno Combrinck. Her inspiration sparked these wonderful visits, Thank you, Pepsi https://academy.rhinosrugby.com/ https://rugbytens.com/cape-town-wild-dogs/
