WOMEN'S Resource & Outreach Centre (WROC) staff and volunteers treated over 50 senior citizens and children from the Lyndhurst/Greenwich Park communities at its annual Christmas treat recently.

"Our seniors often feel neglected and we wanted to show them that they are truly appreciated and to provide them with a small token for Christmas especially since for some, it's the only gift they would receive," said Paulette Burke, co-ordinator for the seniors programme
at WROC.

The programme targets and assists a significant number of senior citizens in the communities served by WROC. The programme addresses issues relating to their general health care, nutrition and personal development.

The community members enjoyed musical selections by Everton Pessoa from the Bare Essentials Band. Students from WROC's education programme were also involved in the treat.
