Helping our community

It’s always great catching up with friends and family but doing it in your own backyard also makes a world of difference to our local economy. One visit from a couple of friends who stay just three nights would deliver nearly a thousand dollars into the community. If only 5% of our community sent a postcard inviting a friend and they each got the same response it would pump around $1.23 million into our local economy. The more people who take action, the greater the benefits to our region.

For some of us, it is juggling the needs of home schooling while trying to look professional on yet another video-conference. For others, it might be the challenges of running a business or trying to access health care across State borders, tackling significant financial pressures or trying to recover from the devastating bushfires.
