POTTS POINT PARTNERSHIP SHINES SPOTLIGHT ON SOLE TRADERS DURING COVID-19

The Potts Point Partnership ran an online campaign in May to support small businesses during the unfolding Covid-19 pandemic.

Nominations were invited to support smaller businesses who might have been forgotten during the pandemic, with the most unique nominations receiving a $100 cash sponsorship from the Potts Point Partnership to spend on the nominated businesses.

The Potts Point Partnership awarded two prizes to benefit Big Issue vendor, Scott Woolfe, and Founder of walkerlab communications, Scott Walker.

Mr Woolfe was nominated by Potts Point local Damien Laver. This is what he had to say about Scott:

“Scott Woolfe is a good bloke, always helpful, always friendly and hard-working. As his job was affected by Covid, nominating him was the least I could do and I’m pleased he has been recognised.”

Mr Walker was nominated by Keiran McKay who opened his Elizabeth Bay bakery, Baked by Keiran, during the pandemic with help from Scott. This is what he had to say about Scott:

“Scott Walker blew us away with his focus on the local community during this time. He is so genuine and reliable and has been a goldmine of advice, mentoring and creativity. Cannot speak more highly of him.”

Chair of the Potts Point Partnership, Carrington Brigham, said “The Board and I were so pleased with the engagement with this campaign. We understood that there are many people who are sole trading small businesses that are often impacted more significantly during times of economic emergencies such as this one. Many nominations were received across a range of small businesses, showing just how vibrant postcode 2011’s business community is.” 

Scott Woolfe said “I’m blown away by this award. This has given me the opportunity to kick-start my return to Potts Point. I feel very humble and thank the Potts Point Partnership for including me in their campaign.”

Scott Walker said “I’m pleased to have been recognised alongside such a prominent local figure in Scott Woolfe and I congratulate the Partnership on this initiative.”
