$2 for every car parking stay that arrives in January will be donated to the Victorian Bushfire Appeal.

The unprecedented bush fires ravaging much of Eastern Victoria and South-East New South Wales, have left me lost for words.

Coming from a sheep farm in Central Victoria, and as a kid having seen my dad fight bush fires that burnt most of our farm and stock, my heart goes out to everyone suffering through this crisis. So many have lost loved ones, their livestock, their homes and quite simply had life turned upside down.

My businesses Andrew’s Airport Parking and Busy Beaver Airport Parking pride themselves on looking after the parking needs of our country customers. Now it’s those country communities who need our help.

Andrew’s and Busy Beaver will be raising funds, with all funds being given to the Victorian Bushfire Appeal to ensure every dollar goes directly to those hardest hit. We will donate $2 from every car parking stay, when that parking stay begins in January.

Additionally, I will be donating a further $20,000 on top of what we raise.

If you are travelling in the coming months and choose to park with our businesses, thank you for your contribution and please, travel safely.
