Resort Maintenance Manager Honoured with Global Environmental Award

Nathan Costelloe, Maintenance Manager at Ramada Resort by Wyndham Seven Mile Beach, was awarded the 2018 Wyndham Destinations Caught Green Handed Award.

Mr Costelloe was recognised for his environmental efforts at the resort including repurposing leftover timber from a pool deck refurbishment to build screens in the resort dining room, along with a bird-viewing platform. He has also set up a native nursery onsite and implemented a food waste recycling program.

To recognise his efforts, Mr Costelloe will have a native rainforest tree planted in his honour in Gunung Leuser National Park in North Sumatra, Indonesia. The park is one of two remaining habitats for Sumatran orang-utans.

Ramada Seven Mile Beach is an eco-inspired resort located right opposite Seven Mile Beach. Situated in a bushland setting, the resort features native gardens, resident wallabies and expansive grounds that reflect the rugged beauty of southern Tasmania.

Big Hearts Help Little Hearts at Ramada Resort by Wyndham Coffs Harbour

Staff and guests at Ramada Resort by Wyndham Coffs Harbour came together and opened their wallets to raise much-needed funds for Australian charity, HeartKids.

An event in February at the resort raised AU$345, which went towards supporting children, teens and adults with congenital heart disease, as well as funding medical research and advocating for families’ needs.

Quality Assurance Representative Michael Sallustio spearheaded the fundraiser for HeartKids, after a successful Valentine’s Day appeal last year.

In 2017, Michael’s nephew, Remi, was diagnosed with congenital heart disease and tragically died seven days after birth. Seeing how his family battled with the incurable condition, Michael was inspired to take action and support other families.

Ramada Coffs Harbour raised funds through an afternoon drinks event with guests and collection tins at reception.
