Travelling regularly from Mullewa to Geraldton for medical treatment has become the norm for this gorgeous couple. 
Jim has been battling numerous cancers and health issues for a long time and the ongoing costs of treatment, travel and living expenses can certainly take its toll.
To help cover their medical costs, Jim & Vicki come into town every Sunday and hold a stall at the Platform markets selling jam and pickles that they make during the week.
They are an incredible ‘salt of the earth’ couple whose wicked sense of humour and love for each other is more powerful than any illness and we are absolutely honoured to have met them and to be able to contribute to the long journey they have ahead.
If you’re at the Platform markets – call in and say Hi!!
