The recent bushfires have led to a wave of generosity in the ACT in gratitude to the fire fighters, and this week two Canberra companies combined to donate a much needed $10,000 to the Springfield Rural Fire Service.

During last month’s smoke haze, Canberra Cavalry’s major community partner, Village Building Company, announced it would match the baseball club’s fundraising efforts and contribute a further $5000 donation to the RFS.

The volunteer fire fighting efforts of the company’s construction engineering manager Jason Burgess provided added motivation for the donation.

This week, local civil engineering company Canberra Contractors decided one good turn deserves another and announced it would contribute $5000 too.

With a combined $10,000, the two companies handed their donations to the Springfield RFS’s Captain Rod Tarlinton at the brigade shed on Wednesday.
