THE Maleny and Montville Chambers of Commerce have been overwhelmed with generous businesses offering to support ‘Hinterland Healing’ packages to help flood-affected business owners in the Gympie region.
Maleny secretary Nicole Hilton said the chambers had been inundated by offers following a callout for mid-week accommodation stays, café and restaurant vouchers and retail vouchers.
The packages were designed to help businesses deal with the stress of the natural disaster.
“We certainly see the damage to property and business but not necessarily the effect it has on one’s mental health,” Nicole said.
“We have been overwhelmed with generosity.
“It’s so great that Maleny and Montville were voted the most welcoming destinations … and it will be great to share that with our Gympie cousins.”
