Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: The Ears Have It

It’s 6am, the sun is only just nudging its way through the clouds. I am up early to write my Soapbox. I was going to write on something else, but this morning when I woke and stumbled to my desk I saw my open diary: 22 January, Michael’s birthday. He would have been 61 today.

Legends Pizza are offering free delivery until 30 June 2020. Contactless delivery and payments are requested.

Suffolk Park residents Scott and Gemma Levy moved to Byron four years ago to raise their young family in a healthy, happy and beautiful environment.
They were married on the beach at Broken Head when their son Skyler was just 18 months old, and not long after, they welcomed the arrival of their baby daughter, Tilly.

When the opportunity arose to purchase the Byron Bay icon, Legends Pizza on Jonson St, from good friends Jono and Megs, they jumped at the chance. On 1 July 2019 they officially took over.

27 days later, at just 3 years old, Skyler was diagnosed with Stage 4 brain cancer, Medulloblastoma, a type of cancer that represents around 20 per cent of childhood brain tumours. The disease was very aggressive, and had already spread through most of his spine – they were told at one stage that he had just 48 hours to live. At the moment, treatment is continuing in Brisbane and the family are hopeful of his recovery. Unbelievably, they have been juggling the pizza shop remotely with the help of friends and staff.

However, as if this was not nearly enough for one family to endure, the hardship has now been compounded with COVID-19 threatening to close the pizza shop and take the family’s livelihood.

The team at Legends have made all required changes to food preparation and service procedures, as per Government requirements, to ensure the safety of their staff and customers. For now they remain open and are trading under limited conditions.
Legends Pizza are offering free delivery until 30 June 2020. Contactless delivery and payments are requested.

For every ten giant pizzas sold, they will donate a pizza voucher to Byron Bay Hospital for their dedicated health workers. As Scott explains, ‘We have been supported by our community, this is our chance to do what we can, to hopefully help. Legends has been using local suppliers for over 25 years, sponsoring local clubs, and being part of an amazing community, and we’ve been supported by the community for almost 30 years.’.

To show your support for this struggling young family you can order a LEGENDS PIZZA with FREE DELIVERY by calling 6685 5700. Remember, contactless payments and delivery are requested pIease.

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.
