Thompson’s Security Group’s General Manager Hans Van Niekerk has spent the past couple of years giving back to those in need over the Christmas period. We’re often consumed in our own lives and chaos at this time of year, and tend to forget those who only dream of a meal let alone 1000 presents under a Christmas tree… Hans and the Thompson’s team have been so wonderful in keeping this going but they need more hands!
Here is a personal note from Hans who is asking for help from those who would like to give back and get involved:
So here the reason why I do this every year… To me it is to show love to kiddies and letting them understand there are people who care. For some of them, this is the only gift that they will receive for the year… It is possibly one of the only things they look forward to…
Obviously I can’t do it by myself but there are always a few people that help. The preparation to wash and clean the toys is a time consuming exercise on its own not to mention the time it takes to make up the sweet packets…
Last year this time I was fortunate with help and had already started with preparations. This year I have not received any help yet and I might have to consider cancelling the run.
I would like to know if there is anyone that would be interested in assisting with this initiative. If so, then please inbox me. If you know anyone else who would be willing to assist then please ask them to inbox me or send me a WhatsApp text.
I need to know by next week Friday 18 October at the latest or I will unfortunately have to cancel.
I trust and hope to hear from you.
