LPGSASA, members join hands to commemorate Mandela Day
This Mandela Day the Liquefied Petroleum Gas Safety Association of Southern Africa (LPGSASA), along with a few of their members joined hands to assist the Lifetree Community Project in Kya Sand, Randburg Johannesburg. The association reached out to its members to request assistance with the donation of a boiling table as the school had recently had their electricity cables stolen from their property. C8terman Equipment, Fuel Gas Catering Equipment as well as Dirette all answered the call for help. Both C8terman and Fuel Gas Catering Equipment donated boiling tables with C8terman further donating a steel table to enable the school to comfortably work on.
Dirk Muller from Dirette installed the boiling table in a safe and compliant manner to ensure that the school kitchen remained safe whilst using LPGas.
All the donated items will be used to start the school’s kitchen where the learners food will be prepared from every day.
Spar Bel Air and Miss Earth contestant, Savhana Grimbeek, partnered with the Association and provided the school and learners with 50 cup cakes to be enjoyed in the spirit of Madiba.
CEO of LPGSASA, Kevin Robertson, explained that part of the challenge that Life Tree has been facing is being able to access electricity on a regular and consistent basis. By using LPGas, Life Tree has been able to overcome much of this challenge. The LPGas Association, through the generosity of some of its members has been able to secure LPGas appliances which Life Tree uses to prepare hot meals on a regular basis.
Furthermore, he said that LPGSASA has enjoyed a relationship with Life Tree for a few years now and as Life Tree does amazing work with the local community specifically in terms of educating children as well as providing meals for the children and even some of their families.
Roberson pointed out that just as Life Tree has been able to support the local community through education and meals, so the Association has been able to support Life Tree in gaining access to the necessary appliances and equipment to assist them in the amazing work which they do. “The LPGSASA will be working side by side with Life Tree in celebration of Mandela Day, for 67 minutes. But it goes further than that. It’s about ongoing support. Life tree have been providing a caring service to the community in the Kya Sand area for many years now and aim to continue doing so going forward. The LPGas Safety Association and its members intend offering the same support to Life Tree and not just for 67 minutes,” said Robertson.
