Good Guys make good
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.
