F&ST is is glad to offer coffees every week to The Breeze weekly coffee shout. One of the teams drawn this month was these hard working folk who are building our soon to be opened CPlay. It looks like good fun for all ages!
The F&ST team know that play is as important as work, so they’ve donated $10,000 to CPlay, the awesome new playground to be built at Caroline Bay. We know this will be a benefit to all the families in South Canterbury.
Here’s Gordon (the boss) and two of his grandchildren handing over the big cheque to OJ and Leanne, two of the team who are driving this project.
