The story continues...

Leah discovered an unmet need at local business, Hush Day Spa. At the time, Hush staff were taking towels home to wash each night.

 

How we helped

With the assistance from Rocky Bay’s STEP program and sensing an opportunity for a micro business, Rocky Bay supported Leah to approach the spa and offered to collect their used towels, launder, fold and return them for a fee.

Leah has been handling the spa’s laundry for 5 months now and has made a massive difference to the staff and business.
