On the 8th of February, Avoca Beach man and expat Scot Mick Jardine was welding at the Block ‘n Tackle Brewery in Kincumber, NSW when there was an explosion, causing serious burns to 30 per cent of his body. He’s on a long road to recovery and the family is counting their blessings, but as a contractor Jardine doesn’t have the support of a big company behind him and as a new Australian resident, he doesn’t have local family to help him, his wife and two young children through this difficult time. Their Central Coast friends and neighbors have banded together in support, with a benefit concert and a raffle featuring donated services and prizes from local businesses. Tickets are available now, online. Playing a huge role in making the benefit concert possible are the staff and owners of the Block ‘n Tackle Brewery. Block ‘n Tackle Director Greg Tobin said, “Michael (Pep) and his wife Michelle who run the brewery, resident chefs Dorothee Myer and Granny from Where’s the food (WTF) witnessed the shocking accident, cared for Mick until the ambulance arrived and have been deeply affected. Our hearts go out to Mick and it is important to all of us that we are part of the healing process that is pulling the community together in support of the Jardines.” Local luxury B&B owner and long-time event and benefit concert organizer, Jo Forster, said, “We are thrilled that Steve Kilbey and Adam Spencer found it in their hearts to get behind our fundraising efforts. Under the Stars with Steve Kilbey will be a night of exceptional entertainment for a few hundred lucky people who snag tickets to this intimate performance by an Australian music legend, with profits going direct to the Jardine family.” Caroline Jardine, Mick’s wife, said, “We’re not sure how we will ever begin to repay all our new friends on the Central Coast, and everyone involved, but we are absolutely beyond grateful for the support. We love living here and it touches our hearts to know we have so many people in our corner. Thank you to each and every person involved and to all who attend the event. And we send love and thanks to our friends and family back home in Ireland who have also been fundraising and doing so much to support us from afar. It’s all been truly amazing.” Only three hundred tickets are available now for this one-night-only benefit performance by Steve Kilbey, Under The Stars at the Block ‘n Tackle Brewery in Kincumber. The ticket price of $75 includes premium entertainment, goodie bag, five lucky door tickets, a schooner of beer and a curry, with food, beer and wine available on the night.  Transaction management experts Spendvision create new Chief Commercial Officer role following period of growth 2013-12-18T01:07:09Z transaction-management-experts-spendvision-create-new-chief-commercial-officer-role-following-period-of-growth Spendvision has appointed Kyle Ferguson to the new role of Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) as the company continues to focus on commercial strategy and growth.
