    Thanks to the friendly Milk & Wine Co team

    by Belinda, 4 months ago

    The fabulous team at Milk & Wine Co in Heathmont have been supporting local frontline workers by facilitating pay-it-forward meals and providing free morning teas.

Going for a walk each day to get that much needed coffee helped me cope with the more difficult things going on in my world. It's the little things that become important at times like this.
