Inspired by changemakers

By October 19, 20148. General News


The Inspiration Cafe on Friday night was a wonderful gathering of changemakers from Bendigo and Castlemaine.

Ben Shue from Free Wheeling Family Fun shared with us his belief that all skills needed in a community are already in that community. He demonstrated the fun that can be had at Free Wheeling Family Fun by getting us to skip as one big group!

Michelle Rankin from Saltworks shared her work to provide meals and social connections to people who are alone or in emergency housing. For some people this is their only cooked meal for the week.

Marg Rosa from The People’s Solar shared about the work they are doing helping communities crowd fund for solar panels on schools and community buildings.

Everyone there had something inspiring to share. We came away feeling inspired and grateful for the great work happening in our community and reinvigorated to continue our own work.
