The Lions Drive is a monthly event. Started in 1962, the Lions Drive developed into a well-organised treat for a group of Sterkfontein patients every month.
The patients are picked up at the hospital and taken to the Walter Sisulu Botanical Garden. There they are treated on tea and eats and taken for a walk through the garden. Sometimes they get goodie bags and other nice thing to take back with them to the hospital.
They were formerly given cigarettes, but that was stopped for obvious reasons. There are no complaints about that from the patients.
