Zim in Polocrosse World Cup final
ZIMBABWE stormed into the finals of the third edition of the Polocrosse World Cup, currently underway in England, with a 100 percent winning record when they overcame United States 24-10 in a semi-final match. The Zimbabweans had a dream start after accounting for New Zealand, Zambia and champions Australia to finish top in their group.
Their opponents, United States, had finished second in the other pool, which was won by neighbours South Africa, and also included United Kingdom and Ireland.
Zimbabwe will play in the final tomorrow against winners between South Africa and Australia, who were scheduled to meet later yesterday in another semi-final. The Zimbabwe team comprises Andy Baker who is the captain, Michael Krynauw, Danie Swan and Graham Keith in the men's side while Audrey Logan, Kelly Redford, Susan Sargeant and Sophie Sargeant make up the women's side. Congratulations to SOUTH AFRICA, winners of the Two Rivers Technology 2011 Polocrosse World Cup! Zimababwe came a worthy second after eight thrilling chukkas. Congratulations also to International Challenge winners France, and International Pony Club winner GB!

My mom subscribes to your Bulawayo mirror and I am typing from her computer. I was hoping you could put her death notice in as she was born and grew up in Bulawayo Her name is Lynne Greeff nee Robertson and she was born on 17 June 1935. I think she was born in Hillside but lived most of her growing up years in the Suburbs. She attended the Bulawayo Convent from baby school to the end. She moved to Cape Town in 1960 to get married but missed Bulawayo most of her life.
She had three daughters who love and miss her. Should someone have known her when she was young and know any stories about her I would love to hear from them.
My email is firstname.lastname@example.org

We, the Zimbabwe Pensioner Supporter Fund have supplied this kitchen that provides cooked meals to many people in Bulawayo with an industrial size 3 plate gas cooker and two large gas containers.
We are unable to keep the containers full and cannot bring gas through the border with the food that we regularly bring into Zim for the pensioners.
What is ideally needed is four or more persons to make up a team that will coordinate the filling of the bottles on a rotation system where each one knows who is next to refill.
We are doing our bit from SA and would really appreciate someone there to take a role with us in this. Once you have a team together please contact Ann at Verity Amm and she will assist with any further information. Another appeal we have had is Maureen Krasser is looking for a friend of hers Jill Wylie ( Rhodesian Author of various books) who she has lost touch with and has heard she may be in one of the "Homes" in Bulawayo. Anybody who has any info concerning Jill can email us on firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you for your newspaper, we really enjoy it, a work well done!

SENIOR CITIZENS SERVICE JUNE NEWSLETTER
So many things have happened in the last 3 months, I'm not sure where to start!
We have recently contacted a Medical Aid who maybe willing to take all our Pensioners on at a reduced rate, which will cover them for private hospital as well as medicines, scans, x-rays, etc. This will take a huge financial burden off SCS, especially when it comes to hospitalization and operations, and if we can find funding for this it will definitely be the way to go. At the moment, we are in the infant stage, and the CEO will be contacting us for further discussions to create a specialized package for us. This is greatly needed and is more than adequately illustrated by the unfortunate and very sad story of an elderly gentleman who was rushed to 24 hr clinic recently. The Doctor on call said that he needed to see a specialist because he had a blockage in the renal area, and so he was moved to UBH (Government hospital), because we could not afford the Mater Dei (Pvt hospital). EMRAS, our ambulance angels, picked him up and took him to UBH, where he was deposited in the casualty by the hospital staff. Thank God EMRAS phoned to let us know that he was on nothing but a stretcher, and that the hospital had no blanket to cover him - it was freezing; this poor man! Luckily, the Chair lady of Rhodes Jubilee happened to be in the area, and she borrowed a blanket from a friend whom she was visiting and took it up to him. However, when his stepdaughter went up a bit later to see what was happening, she found that someone had stolen his blanket and he was once again without any cover in the freezing cold! Tragically, we lost this gentleman a day later... Our Pensioners should NOT have to go through something like this!
On the bright side, we have a container arriving soon, hopefully within the next week or so, from the UK with medical equipment donated by Coronium Care via Sean Kelly. Inside the container are walkers, wheelchairs, beds, bath chairs, zimmer frames, commodes, bedpans and many more vital items, as well as consumables such as catheters and incontinence pads, some of which will go directly to Edith Duly. A BIG thank you to Sean for his liaison with Corinium Care to make it happen, Leila Hunt for organizing the paper work with Zimra and of course to Coronium Care and Sean Kelly for the wonderful donation. SCS has also moved its admin office from Coronation Cottages, because the admin staff were having to take on more and more medical work, and, although they were perfectly capable of doing so, they were not really qualified, and the legalities of this therefore became a matter of concern.
Edith Duly have very kindly given us the Vinnicombe clinic for SCS, and we are looking at moving both our clinic and admin into it as soon as renovations are complete. We will also then have room for the dentist, Dr Masiya, who has kindly offered us 1 day a month free care, but to this end, we still need the chair, light, drills, etc. Therefore, we are looking for donations of 2nd hand equipment to allow our pensioners to have the dental care some of them so desperately need. As a start, we do have the x-ray machine coming down in the container from Coronium Care!
The clinic needs to be revamped, and so far we have had paint donated by Paint & Allied, donation of a sign from Sandford Signs, and fencing from Fence Africa, tiles from Bathroom Boutique, so a huge thank you to you all! It is coming together thanks to all your help, and we hope to move in by the end of July, if not before!
We are also looking at employing a full time nurse in the clinic, and Coronation Cottages are willing to give us a cottage with rent, lights and water free, as part of the nurses package. However, we still need to come up with a salary - anyone willing to sponsor the nurse would be greatly appreciated!
We are very excited about it as we feel it will give more to our Pensioners in the medical scheme of things. They will have a nurse on call 24/7 and she will also be able to do the every day stuff like dressings, BP, sugar testing and general well being. She will also be able to keep patients there for observation, if need be. In the long run we would like a physiotherapist and chiropodist to also use the premises on a monthly or weekly basis as the need arises, and we may also be able to do the hearing tests as well. There is just so much potential...!
Our current clinics are still busy with patients, and the need for these is so great, as some of the pensioners often leave their ailments until they are in such a desperate state that it takes a lot to pick them back up again and get their strength and health back. We are averaging about 55 patients at the moment on a bi-weekly basis, and Coronation Cottages clinic sometimes goes on until 6pm - so thank you to the dedicated staff and Doctor Legg!
EMRAS has been called upon 9 times in this quarter, totaling $270. Thank you once again to EMRAS for their caring treatment of our Pensioners - this service is vital!
Food for Homes Bulawayo (FHB) deliveries continue, for the last 6 months over
US$ 18000 worth of food has been delivered to the homes, with dry product on a monthly basis and fresh fruit and veg on a weekly basis. Our truck finally came though and we were able to give a substantial delivery to the homes this month. Thank you to HIZ for their support and to all of you who have helped with chickens, meat, m/meal etc - we really appreciate it!
The winners of the generator raffle are as follows:
1st Generator - D. Demetria
2nd Asaki Mini Kitchen - F. Mitchell
3rd Wine gift pack - J. Nortje
The Trustees of SCS on behalf of the Pensioners would like to thank the following sponsors:
Rob Adlam for the generator
Lyle Watridge for the Asaki Mini kitchen
Southern Comfort Lodge for the Gift Pack of wine
For sale of tickets: The Gift Shop, Barons Motor spares, Pembroke Place and Tanya Hunt.
And of course you the public for your support for a very worthy cause. Thank you!
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all our donors who support us and keep us going in these very trying times. Special thanks to Fuel supplies who keep us on the road - we could not continue without your support! Please note that we have a face book page: Senior Citizens Service, as well as a group and feel free to join our cause, so please feel free to visit them. We will also have a blog page shortly and would appreciate some feed back on both! Any donations in cash or kind would be greatly appreciated, and our bank details can be found on FB and in due course on our new blog page: https://seniorcitizensservice.wordpress.com/
Help us to help our Pensioners, they are STILL in desperate need - nothing has changed for them!!! And remember we will all grow old one day let's hope we will be in a better situation... Keep warm!!
