Help us tell the stories that matter
JOURNALISTS are driven to report the news by the stories that matter.
Today's front page written by Emily Burley is one of those inspiring events that too often go unnoticed and unreported in the local community.
What a confronting scene for a humble tradie to come across on the way to work, a young mother in complete distress holding her young child as he struggled to breathe.
The Advocate found out about this story through a heartfelt Thumbs Up written by Elias's grandparents.
As they said, their sincere words cannot express the gratitude that Adam happened to be passing by at that moment and that he had the attention to detail to stop, when others did not.
In Coffs Harbour these types of incidents happen on a near-daily basis.
What's important is that the stories are told.
In our commitment as the people's paper of the Coffs Coast, please share the news with us.
After all, up to 60% of the content in The Advocate is supplied by you the readers.
Story leads on community news are gratefully accepted at email@example.com.
