Kevin, or Kevvy as he's known, is a resident of Albany Creek who is young at heart. During the COVID-19 lockdowns he started walking twice a day, taking the time to chat to everyone he met along his way. Kevvy soon became a bright light for many locals during those difficult times and became well-loved in the area.
Recognising the need for social connection through the pandemic, Kevvy wanted to help bring more people together. To help people get to know their neighbours, so they could feel as happy as he did his walks. Kevvy decided the best way to do this was to hand-deliver invitations to local households for a community gathering.
Kevvy now hosts a morning tea every public holiday in the local park. It has become a huge hit with more than 100 people attending the last one. Kevvy hasn’t stopped walking and still hand-delivers the invitations to more than 150 local houses.
