THANKS FOR YOUR GOOD NEIGHBOUR NOMINATIONS

We asked for your GOOD NEIGHBOUR nominations, and you responded, with wonderful stories about individuals who are committed to bettering the communities they live in, the planet and the future. We chose 2 of these stories and invited those Good Neighbours to the last Folkus 2017 concert.

But we wanted to make sure we said THANK YOU to all those who got into the spirit of Nominating their Neighbour. Your stories have been a breath of fresh air, and we thank you for the generosity of spirit you showed by nominating not yourself, but your neighbour – because that means you’re a Good Neighbour, too.
