Coun­try boy makes the cut

Midwest Times - - FRONT PAGE -

A Ger­ald­ton fire­fighter thought a 2019 cal­en­dar fea­tur­ing Perth’s best-look­ing fireys needed a bit of coun­try flair, so he ap­plied to the se­lec­tion com­mit­tee.

His ap­pli­ca­tion was suc­cess­ful and now the Vol­un­teer Fire and Res­cue Ser­vice’s Dan Gold­ing has made the cut — and his mother Michele couldn’t be prouder.

“He’s got a re­ally car­ing, per­son­al­ity, a good na­ture and that’s not just com­ing from his mum,” she said.

“When he came home and told us, I was like ‘wow’ — we were all that ex­cited.

“My friends are al­ways telling me ‘ make sure you get me a cal­en­dar’.”

Sales of the Perth Fire­fight­ers Cal­en­dar sup­port the burns unit at Perth Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal.

The 2019 cal­en­dar fea­tures 14 fire­fight­ers and Mr Gold­ing can be found in the month of Novem­ber.

He will shortly be given a num­ber of cal­en­dars to sell at a lo­cal shop­ping cen­tre.

Since the fundraiser started in 2008, more than $1 mil­lion has been raised for the burns unit.
