Following the outbreak of wildfires in the Winelands district this past weekend, Checkers made a large donation of refreshments to the Winelands Fire Protection Association.
With the Western Cape's annual fire season now in full swing, firefighters remain on high alert and Checkers has ensured that they are equipped with sufficient bottled water, cold drinks, energy bars and chips.
MediRite, the chain of pharmacies located inside Shoprite and Checkers supermarkets, has also donated eye drops and rehydration sachets.
"We would like to thank Shoprite and Checkers for their kind donation and for providing the necessary resources to make this immense task more bearable for our firefighters," said Dale Nortje, Manager for the Winelands Fire Protection Association.
