Vatel Nimes works closely with seniors during the blue week

The protestant senior residence, Les Terrasses requested Vatel Nimes for its noon restaurant services on October 12 and 13 in the framework of the nationwide Blue Week event. The aim of this week is to bring generations closer to each other.

The aim of this week is to bring generations closer to each other and to make the general public more aware of the role the elderly play in our society.


A team of seven students will ensure restaurant services: Valentin Rodriguez, Victor Salou, Thomas Petit, Arthur Pelissier, Lea-Marie Ferrier et Zelie Labrousse.

 

“I was really motivated by the idea of doing good for these people, showing them our commitment, and bringing something new into their residence,” said Zelie Labrousse, a member of Student Services and in charge of organizing this project.

 Valentin Rodriguez, who was working that day, tells us more:

 “I felt concerned by this project, as my grandparents are both in a retirement home. It was important for me to devote part of my spare time to this operation and give the residents a bit of happiness. They really seemed glad to see us and we had time to talk with them. They were proud to tell us about their lives. After we had finished serving lunch, one of the residents took the mic to thank us on behalf of the others for having spent a few hours with them. This was the first time I had the opportunity to take part in an action like this. I hope I’ll be able to do it again.”
