COVID-19 has made an impact in our country, with businesses, sporting clubs and local charities being hit hard through this holiday time. Staying at home to stay lives this Easter is the message for all.
However, despite the hardship we are all feeling, the local community have been out and about helping to spread some Easter joy to those doing it tough.
Our House, the purpose built accommodation for people who are receiving cancer treatment in Lismore has received a delivery of local Hot Cross Buns from Football Far North Coast.
“We recognize that with the restrictions and recommendations for staying at home, the guests at Our House may need some encouragement from others during this time.” Said Steve Mackney, General Manager, Football Far North Coast.
“What better way to say we care then with Hot Cross Buns, it is just a small sweet gesture to say we recognize that both supporting clubs and local charities are affected but together we can work through this season”, said Steve.
“COVID-19 has impacted charities, as it has all businesses we work with in the community, so with the current restrictions that are in place to help save lives our fundraising has unfortunately been impacted”, said Rebekka Battista, Our Kids and Our House Fundraising Coordinator.
“Hot Cross Buns are such a great way to show our guests that our community cares and that they are thinking of them during Easter”, said Rebekka.
“A huge thanks to Football Far North Coast and the soccer community, they have supported Our Kids and Our House for years and we know too they have been hit hard. We really appreciate them championing us through this” said Rebekka.
