Thank you Books 4 Outback!

These 3 men (self-funded organisation, Books 4 Outback) are delivering books to outback communities.

“Mr Lane – a former volunteer for Lifeline – established Books 4 Outback with fellow volunteer, Bill Iceton, who he said was instrumental in transporting the books to the outback.

The two men also teamed with Acrobat Removals owner, Norm Doughty, who gave them a place to store their books.”

Some people just know how to help others. So much respect for these men.
