Donor Spotlight -Beach Suites Byron Bay
Local Byron business Beach Suites began their donor journey with the NRCF several years ago and is a treasured member of the NRCF family. Known for their luxury, pet-friendly accommodation, we caught up with Helen Buckley, General Manager at Beach Suites to learn a little more about why they choose to give where they live.
Q. What is the best part about our region? Where would we find you on your downtime?
The best part of our region is the natural beauty – from the coastline to the depths of the hinterland, we are incredibly spoilt. Downtime is spent with family, going out for breakfast around the area, gardening or walking the dog along the dog friendly section of Tallow Beach.
Q. What inspired you to become a regular donor to the Northern Rivers Community Foundation?
Beach Suites chose to become a regular donor to this NRCF due to the diversity of recipients and that they encompass the entire Northern Rivers. With combined efforts we can all work towards the greater good.
