Clr Liz Innes, Mayor, Eurobodalla Shire Council

"Congratulations on your nomination for the ‘Big Heart Award’ in the Biggies by the Business Council of Australia.

I strongly support this nomination. The 2019-20 Black Summer Bushfires resulted in many challenges for the community and business owners alike. These challenges included the closure of main transport routes and the loss of power. During these times, you went above and beyond to serve the community, emergency responders and your own team.

Following the initial impact on New Years Eve 2019, you donated a significant amount of food to the emergency evacuation centres, opened your store to community under difficult circumstances and raised money for our local fire brigades.

Your outstanding character and integrity during this time is something you should be very proud of."
