Business award to local Rotary member
The membership director for the Rotary Club of Brisbane Water Mr Mitchell Gordon has won Central Coast Council's "business connecting communities" Australia Day award.
Council's Community and Culture Unit manager Mr Glenn Cannard said Mr Gordon was involved in establishing Woy Woy Antiques and Collectables in June 2020.
The store has since moved to Gosford.
"The business was established to assist local charities affected by the ongoing pandemic, with a percentage of profits going to a different not-for-profit organisation each month.
"The store has raised thousands of dollars for local charities.
"The store also collects dry goods and personal care items for Coast Shelter, as well as offering volunteering opportunities for people living with disability and supports local artists and authors by selling their work."
The award comes after Mr Gordon's voluntary efforts were recognised by Volunteering Central Coast and Rotary International in 2021.
