Once again members of the community have come together to help Cops for Kids help local children.

Cst. Mike Hull, with the Golden RCMP, has been working hard to raise money for the charity and this week Martijn Duijts and Chris Duijts (owners of the Fire Pit BBQ Smokehouse and the Kicking Horse Grill) stepped up in a large way to help out.

Hull originally approached the restaurant owners with one idea to help the charity when the owners of the local restaurant made the offer to donate up to 200 packs of their locally made jerky to the project.

“One hundred per cent of the proceeds will come back to Cops for Kids. It is awesome that they are supporting  us like this and helping out how they can,” Hull said.

Chris explained they wanted to get involved after meeting Hull at a Cops for Kids event.

“I was impressed that he had put so much time and effort into the project,” he said. “We thought if there was anything we could do to help out then we should.”

The men had just launched their own brand of locally made beef jerky which has been selling in many stores in the area and beyond.

“This is huge for us. This is one iPad for a child who needs it,” Hull said. “To have a local business help local kids is what this is all about. I want to thank them for helping take this on.”

Another barbecue will be held at Overwaitea  on July 21 where the jerky will be on sale.
