Zimbabwe Newspapers (1980) Limited yesterday donated groceries and foodstuffs to one of its support staff, a Zimcan security officer whose house was destroyed by fire in Epworth last month.

The donation of maize meal, cooking oil, sugar, beans, washing powder and soap among others things was handed over by public relations manager Mrs Pauline Matanda.
