Mary Gardner, Byron Bay

Thank you to everyone offering me support of every kind in my ongoing health crisis. My specialist says one of the most important things is to install airconditioning. Thanks to all of you the new equipment is on its way.

Some people tell me they have become blood donors: you’re heroes. Helping three people with each donation. Folks with flu, with injuries, or like me, who need blood every fortnight (FYI Blood mobile at Cavanbah Centre 8 July 1.30 till 6.30pm and 9 July 9am till 2 pm).

Thanks for all the messages, calls, visits, and especially poetry shared!

Unexpectedly on crutches owing to an ankle injury, I was starting to despair. But the tangible continuous sharing and caring helps me day after day.

Thinking of you, let me quote Proust: ‘Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.’


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
