A country Victoria-based business has extended Bendigo charity group Foodshare a lifeline with the donation of a forklift.
Ouyen-based training organisation Top End Training gifted the machine to the organisation which distributes food directly to local relief agencies.
Foodshare administration and food rescue manager Fay Barrett said the organisation’s old forklift was ready for retirement. “If it was an animal, it would have been euthanased a long time ago,” she said.
She was moved to tears by the generosity of Top End Training director Bill Morrish, the man she calls “Santa Claus”.
