- Christmas time is a period of giving and sharing
- A Mzansi man demonstrated the true meaning of the Christmas spirit when he gifted his garden worker with brand new running shoes
- The employee enjoys running and was placed in the top 10 in the Soweto Marathon last year.
Lionel Gafney took to the #ImStaying group on Facebook to share his story. Norman, his gardener, has worked for the Gafney family for over 10 years. He recently took up running and has been doing very well.
"This year as soon as the entries for Comrades 2020 opened he asked my dad to help him enter. My Dad sponsored him his entry fees for the Comrades"
