There are numerous stories of giving and goodwill during the festive season and 2011 was no different.
Christmas came a bit early for the residents of the Springs Home for Battered and Abused Women when Fire Raiders partnered with DHL to bring a bit of happiness in the form of toys and gifts to the home.
On 26 November 2011, Fire Raiders drove Father Christmas to the home to go and donate presents to the mothers and children residing in the home.Christo Muller, marketing manager at Fire Raiders comments that Fire Raiders felt that getting involved in this initiative was a small way in which they could give something back to the community.
The children were completely overwhelmed to see the bright red fire engine pull up in their driveway, leaving Father Christmas feeling as though he had a bit of competition at the event. Muller laughed at this commenting “All children love a fire engine and one filled with toys and a friendly Father Christmas is even better!”
