High Tea a hit at Hotel Windsor

A footy legend and one of Australia’s most loved actresses shared their personal experiences of positive ageing at two sold out Benetas events during the 2013 Victorian Seniors Festival.

AFL Football legend Tom Hafey shared his experiences with seniors on Tuesday 8 October, and Ambassador for Ageing, Noeline Brown, joined guests on Thursday 10 October at the Hotel Windsor for the Benetas 2013 High Teas.

Benetas was proud to be joined by 400 Victorian seniors, with people travelling from regional Victoria to Melbourne for the events.

Sandra Hills, CEO, said hosting events such as the Benetas High Teas, were incredibly important.

“We don’t often take the time to stop and thank older people for their contributions to our society. Victorian Senior’s Festival is the perfect time to do just that — and we were very lucky to be able to do it in such a wonderful location,” Ms Hills said.

“Our speakers really touched on the importance of being active in the community, and not getting socially isolated. That is such an important message for our older population.”

Guests, Elva and Jim, shared their story of how they stayed at The Hotel Windsor on their wedding night, back in 1958.

“It is great to be back here. We feel very lucky to be here today. There certainly is lots of water under the bridge since that day,” Jim said.
