Women’s Day 2016

This afternoon the top 12 Miss Hellene 2016 ladies along with myself and Miss Hellene co-ordinaries- Katerina Achilleos visited Agios Nektarios to celebrate Women’s Day and spend time getting to know the elderly at the home. Our day began around 10Am and ended around lunch time. 
Thank you to the Hellenic Federation of South Africa who joined us and delivered a truck load of stock and basic necessities for the home. As Miss Hellene ladies we also brought pink roses to hand out to every lady and make them feel as special as we possibly could on Woman’s Day as it is a day celebrating powerful, loving and strong women who have helped shape us as women today. 
We spent our time there conversing with the elderly, listening to their stories and their wisdom. Many of them knew a few relatives of mine so it was interesting listening to what they had to say! We also got a chance to listen to one yiayia who played piano for us and after that we put some music on and did some greek dancing for them. I think they enjoyed watching and the music as much as we enjoyed dancing for them! 
After we danced, the ladies spoilt us by baking us delicious Greek biscuits. This really was a special day!
