THE adage ‘many hands make light work’ proved true for many in the Eston community when the Beaumont Eston Farmers Association (BEFA) and Magma Security & Investigations joined forces to donate 1000 food hampers to those affected by the Covid-19 lockdown in the area last month.

Seeing the negative effects Covid-19 had on the economy, and on people’s lives, members of BEFA initiated the BEFA Fund, which saw farmers raise money for 500 hampers consisting of sugar, rice, samp, beans, tin fish, tea bags, toilet roll, oil and soup.

This was then matched by Magma Security & Investigations, who work closely with farmers in the community, enabling 1000 people to receive hampers.
