Palms crew helps Grafton evacuees

IT'S a long way to come for a chicken sandwich but Grafton residents enjoyed a good feed in Coffs Harbour last weekend courtesy of Palms Shopping retailers.

Hot barbeque chickens and freshly baked bread, compliments of Palms Chicken Butchery and Bakers Delight, were delivered to more than 200 Grafton residents taking temporary shelter from rising floodwaters at an evacuation centre in Gordon Street, Coffs Harbour.

John Senes, from Jade Hair Design, also dug deep and donated $1000 worth of vouchers that could be redeemed at any food retailer at Palms Shopping centre.

“After seeing people suffer the disruption to their homes and businesses in the Coffs flood, I just knew I had to help out these people,” John said.
