I write for Weekend Notes and I take photographs, usually sunsets and sunrises. Occasionally I include my photos in my articles. I like to promote Geelong, and activities around Geelong.

The Apollo Bay and District Health Foundation has been nominated as the Official Charity of the Great Ocean Road Marathon.

Services such as the doctors, ambulance, CFA, accident and emergency, surf clubs, ocean rescue, schools, and community health organisations all receive financial support from the Great Ocean Road Marathon foundation.

In 2013, fundraising allowed the purchase of a Defibrillator for CFA, Istat Blood Testing Machine for Apollo Bay and District Hospital, and start up equipment for Apollo Bay Little Athletics.
