Founding trustee Rochelle Francis cuts the cake, celebrating 5 years!

The Love Local team have been busy during May.  We have celebrated turning five with the addition of many new customers. We have also attended some great events in Invercargill, such as the Community Expo and Southland Interagency Forum.  It has been fantastic to network with other like-minded agencies in Invercargill and spread the Love Local message. 

A big thank you to everyone that came along to celebrate our fifth birthday with us.  It is a fantastic milestone and wonderful to see such strong public support.  Thanks also to The Pantry for hosting us.  It is a pleasure to be able to work alongside a fellow Invercargill social enterprise.  If you are currently a Love Local customer and would like to be able to source other grocery items from a supplier that supports our community, please check out The Pantry on Grace Street.  A special thanks to Taylor Made Cakes for our yummy cake!

I would also like to acknowledge the founding trustees (Scott and Sara Westbury, Rochelle Francis and Nathan Surendran) for having the vision to establish Love Local five years ago.  It is a fantastic organisation, one that we are all proud to be involved with as well as having a great positive impact on our community.

Stay healthy!

Louise Duffy,

Operations Manager
