For Christmas 2021, the Gas Fast team wanted to give back to the local Castleford community, by giving away £1,500 in gifts to families in need.
Read more on this page about how we delivered these presents and the positive impact that it made for the families and the community.
The morning started outside the Gas Fast office, in Castleford, loading the truck with the presents to be delivered across the town.
We secured the presents in the bed of the pickup truck, put on our Christmas jumpers and got a move on.
Our Christmas bags were full of presents, varying from chocolate boxes, board games, toys and more.
With the sleigh filled, we were ready to ‘rock n’ roll’ onto our first destination.
We were on the road and needed to drop off presents to 10 different homes across Castleford.
Our little helpers were excited to be helping those in the local area.
Our first delivery was at a home in Castleford, not too far away from the office.
We knocked on the door, stood back and waited for the family to come outside, we passed over the gift bag full of goodies and were glad that we brought smiles to their faces.
We’ve delivered our first gift package to the first home and have just 9 more homes to visit before we’re done for the day.
Our last delivery was the house furthest away from the office and it was for a family of 6 people.
Being able to help people in the local area who going through a rough patch, giving people a helping hand with some extra presents under the Christmas tree was a great experience for the Gas Fast team.
From all of the team at Gas Fast, we’d like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! We love our local community, because we are the local community. We’re not going anywhere anytime soon and really look forward to doing the same thing in Christmas 2022. Stay safe and lots of love,
Gas Fast Team
