Wedding anniversaries are always a great excuse for a night out, but when you’ve been married 65 years it’s definitely worthy of a celebration.
Daniel and Christina (nèe Landman) Bothma were married in Durban, South Africa, on February 2nd, 1956. They raised two children: a daughter, Dalene, who lives in Singapore, and a son, Phil, who lives in the Waikato. They have three grandchildren and three great-grandchildren who live in New Zealand, and two grandchildren living in Singapore.
Danny and Tina – or Danny and Tina as they are known - moved to New Zealand from South Africa in 2007. They are very pleased to be in New Zealand and live happily in the Salvation Army Village on Blockhouse Bay Road. They enjoy the company of their supportive and kind village friends.
