Heap some happiness on your favourite business

Published on 25 September 2020


If you have a favourite business that’s done great things over the last 12 months, nominate them to receive a happiness hamper as part of MidCoast celebrations for NSW Government’s Small Business month from 1-31 October.

“MidCoast locals are great at pulling together when times are tough, and we’ve all been supporting our local businesses through devastating drought, unprecedented bushfires and a one in a hundred year pandemic,” said MidCoast Council’s Economic Development Coordinator, Robyn Brennan.

“We’ve seen amazing resilience and adaptation by our businesses as they’ve tackled each of these challenges, but there’s no doubt that these events have taken their toll on many small business operators across the MidCoast.”

Thanks to a grant from the NSW Government, and partnering with the Taree, Harrington Crowdy Head, Wingham and Forster Tuncurry Business Chambers, we’re asking you to nominate a local business that could really do with a reward, to win a happiness hamper.

The happiness hampers will be chock-full of goodies, from motivational business books to locally sourced pamper products.

“The thought-provoking books provide the opportunity for businesses to reflect on how they reacted to recent stressors, while the pamper products are designed to show our local businesses that they are supported, and reminding them that there is a caring community surrounding them,” said Robyn.

“The non-perishable pamper products are all sourced from within the MidCoast, and will also let businesses know what’s in their own big backyard, encourage collaboration and promote a strong and inclusive economy.”
