Residents at Mallala have opened their hearts and their pockets to help raise funds for one local family following a pop-up shop sale event of small businesses on Thursday, November 17.
Organised by Karin and Jayne Tiller – two well-known and loved Mallala girls – the event was a great success with more than $600 raised in support of 31-year-old Brian Wright, who was recently diagnosed with MS.
Brian’s wife, Alicia, and their daughter Katie, 5, dropped into the Mallala Institute to visit the collection of stalls and was overwhelmed by the support.
“It’s been a bit of a whirlwind journey but we’re getting there slowly,” Alicia said.
“The community support has been fantastic since Brian was diagnosed in June this year.
“It’s been amazing really.”
