Giving a helping hand – with a van


If you need a helping van, then Fitzgerald Construction could be what you need.
For the company’s 20th birthday it decided to gift a van to the community.

“This was just a way of giving back,” administrator Belinda Taggart said.

The van is available for anyone to use for free. So, in the past few weeks sporting and social groups have taken it as far as Blenheim and Invercargill and back.

“As long as they clean it we don’t mind,” Belinda says. “They can just ring up and book, and then head away and do what they need to do.”

The company hasn’t advertised the service but already it is getting around.

“We want it to be used, that’s what it’s there for,” Belinda says. “It’s just easy to use. There are no rules or regulations.”

To book the van call 03-547 5977.
