Just friends who get a kick out of giving
We're (from left to right) Pippa, Richie, Lulu (the dog) and Kylie, and we're Bangalow locals who love our community very much.
We are a group of volunteers who were part of the incredible Baked Relief Bangalow back in May 2017 after the floods caused so much damage to Lismore, Murwillumbah and surrounding areas. It was so moving to be part of this community who rallied together and did so much to support those in immediate need.
In 2017 we realised we'd like to do more than just help in times of crises. We wanted to help those in our community who find themselves struggling because of illness, accident, job loss, or one of the many other things that can create a need for you to receive support from a community who cares.
We approached the Bangalow Lions to ask for their support, and they embraced the idea wholeheartedly.
Bangalow Lion Hearts was formed, and due incredible donations, sponsorship from local (and further afield) generous souls, and operating under the Bangalow Lions insurance, we've been able to help locals and people in need further afield! It feels good to do good for others.
We can't do it without you, so if you can cook, bake, donate produce from your garden, donate ingredients if you don't like (or have time!) to cook or bake, we can use it all!
If you'd like to donate money, please do so via the Bangalow Lions, specifying in the description "Bangalow Lion Hearts".
If you are able to to assist with working bees, driving, or anything else - we want to hear from you.
The group has been created, managed and coordinated by Bangalow locals; Kylie Mowbray-Allen, Richard Allen and Pippa Vickery, with the support of the Bangalow Lions.
