Magnetic Storm helps create award-winning Christmas home 

Port Elizabeth’s famous ‘Grootendorst Christmas lights’ on Melsetter Road now has national recognition as it was named News24's holiday house of the year 2017. 

When asked by the family to support the decoration of their home ready for Christmas, Magnetic Storm was excited to lend a hand and be part of the now iconic Christmas home. 

Magnetic Storm was asked to add to the Christmas lights experience by supplying additional lighting and bringing in sound elements. 

“The gift of giving at Christmas is important to Magnetic Storm,” remarks Magnetic Storm Strategic Director, Jane Stevenson. “To be able to be involved in creating a beautiful experience that was born from a dark moment in the Grootendorst’s family is truly special. It’s a gift they give to the city, and one we hope they continue.” 

A well-known Port Elizabeth family, with the popular Grootendorst bakery, and heavily involved in the community, the Christmas light extravaganza is an extension of the family’s generosity, and spirit and has turned from being a gift to an individual family member to being one for the city of Port Elizabeth, as a whole.
