Tarlton police give back to the disabled and senior community


People living with disabilities as well as senior citizens received an early Christmas from the men and women in blue last Thursday.

The Tarlton Men for change and Women’s Network brought joy and happiness to these residents of Tarlton.

This was achieved through an outreach programme aimed at helping those who are less privileged.

Altogether 60 community members from all seven informal settlements around the area were hosted and treated. This included senior citizens and people living with disabilities.  They all received blankets, clothes and groceries.

Some Community members who were unable to make their way to the community hall were reached during our door to door campaign. They also received blankets and other goodies.

This was done in line with the 16 Days of Activism for no violence against women and children abuse. The recipients were encouraged to report any form of violence or abuse  perpetrated against them.

The Acting Station Commander of Tarlton police, Captain Phaahla applauded the members for their generosity.
