Good Guys make good

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - News -

A KENS­ING­TON fam­ily had their Christ­mas wishes granted thanks to The Good Guys Bel­mont.

Iden­ti­fied through the store’s Lo­cal Giv­ing Pro­gram part­ner Princess Mar­garet Hos­pi­tal Foun­da­tion, the El­bert fam­ily were given a much-needed Christ­mas boost.

Seven year old Beth El­bert was di­ag­nosed with Down syn­drome, cere­bral palsy and spinal cord com­pres­sion and re­cently has been in and out of hos­pi­tal.

To give the fam­ily some ex­tra Christ­mas cheer, the team from The Good Guys sur­prised the fam­ily with a range of good­ies from their wish list.

Beth’s moth­erJane said she was over­whelmed by the store’s gen­eros­ity and sup­port.

“What a fan­tas­tic sur­prise it was for our fam­ily dur­ing the Christ­mas pe­riod,” she said.

“This show of kind­ness really makes you see there is good in the world.”

The Good Guys Bel­mont store manag- er Josh Rimunui said the team was proud to sup­port the wor­thy cause.

“The spirit of giv­ing is what Christ­mas is all about and we were really ex­cited to play Se­cret Santa and en­sure the El­bert fam- ily had a few ex­tra presents un­der the tree,” he said.

Among the gifts were a pink iPod nano and cam­era for Beth, a sil­ver iPod shuf­fle and Sam­sung tablet for her two sis­ters and a new vac­uum.
