Popular seniors’ dinner seeks more volunteers

Les Passmore Centre seeks drivers for “Guess who’s coming to dinner” event

It’s impossible for the director of Saanich Silver Threads to predict just who will come through the doors of the Les Passmore Centre during their “Guess who’s coming to dinner” event. But what Sue McCauley can say for certain: it’ll be between 60 and 80 people – so long as everyone has a ride there.

The popular outreach event is in need of more volunteer drivers to ensure its loyal clientele can continue to attend every first and third Wednesday of the month. But with only 10 drivers, available at different times, seven people were left out of the last dinner.

“Once it’s dark by five, six or seven, seniors won’t drive,” McCauley said. “We need people who will drive in the miserable dark weather.”

People able to drive to any area of Greater Victoria are needed to pick up dinner guests. Silver Threads can’t reimburse drivers for mileage, they will waive the $12 ticket price for dinner and the live entertainment

To volunteer, call McCauley at 250-382-3151 or email suemccauley@silverthreads.ca
