Train­ing boost for fire­fight­ers

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Mr Rental’s Bob Pavis-Hall is up­ping ef­forts to help his com­mu­nity by do­nat­ing the use of tread­mills to vol­un­teer fire­fight­ers train­ing for the Sky Tower Stair Chal­lenge.

Six mem­bers of the Ti­tahi Bay Vol­un­teer Fire Brigade are train­ing and fundrais­ing for the 2015 Fire­fighter Sky Tower Stair Chal­lenge, on May 23.

They are aim­ing to raise much­needed sup­port for Leukaemia and Blood Can­cer New Zealand.

Mr Rental Porirua and the fire­fight­ers re­cently took the cause to the com­mu­nity at the North City Shop­ping Cen­tre, train­ing on the equip­ment in their full kit. They have now raised nearly $2000, with more than $770 of that com­ing from shop­pers.

‘‘Our vol­un­teer fire­fight­ers al­ready do such a great job and par­tic­i­pat­ing in this chal­lenge is an­other ex­am­ple of how th­ese inspiring in­di­vid­u­als go above and be­yond for our com­mu­nity,’’ Pavis-Hall said.

‘‘Mr Rental has been a part of the Porirua com­mu­nity for 11 years and as a lo­cal busi­ness owner I recog­nise the im­por­tant of giv­ing some­thing back.’’
