Since January 1, 2020 the Bega Valley Shire located in the South East corner of NSW has been impacted by bush fires. Hundreds of homes have been destroyed along with an unimaginable number of wildlife and both natural and built resources. These fires still burn.
The 'Border Fire' which is the largest fire ever recorded has been burning around the town of Eden since January 4th. The town of Eden and surrounding towns rely heavily on the summer tourist months to survive the slower times. This year our businesses have lost this trade along with the cancellation of 5 cruise ships thus far. The effects of this financial blow will be felt for months to come with many businesses already facing closure.
One resource we still have is an incredible amount of unique shops, creators and producers that want to share their goods with you! Here is an opportunity to help our community in a direct and practical way while having a special something for yourself or gifting it on.
