Scouts help home fundraise


Ahead of it’s centenary next year, the Adams Farm Home for the intellectually disabled, in Plumstead, hosted a fundraising event on Saturday April 30.

Kindly organised by the Constantiaberg District Scouts, the event saw the home’s garden filled with the sound of happy children’s voices.

“We invited the community to come and mix with the residents and get to know what goes on behind the vibracrete wall which they see when driving over Plumstead bridge,” said Adams Farm Home administrator, Pat Baudains.

Everyone – including the residents – played table and field games.

The Constantiaberg District Commissioner, Ebrahim Abrahams, gave a vote of thanks to the Adams Farm staff and the scouters of 1st and 2nd Plumstead, 1st Wetton, 1st Naruna and Constantia and 1st Belvedere, who assisted.

Mr Abrahams said scouting in the Western Cape is open to girls and boys between he ages of seven and 18.

“It gives a wonderful sense of the outdoors, water-sports, camping and learning new skills,” he said.
