Sim­ple act makes world of dif­fer­ence

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

A SIM­PLE act of kind­ness has gone a long way.

Ja­son Win­tle, owner of Just Jase Hair in Port Dou­glas, has won a statewide award for Great Ser­vice at the Car­ers Friendly Busi­ness Awards for Na­tional Car­ers Week.

Ja­son was nom­i­nated for go­ing above and be­yond the call of duty.

He takes the ini­ti­ate to visit Mara Booth in Oz­care so she can have her hair cut and coloured.

Ja­son said he didn’t think much of his sim­ple ges­ture.

“I don’t feel like I’ve done any­thing dif­fer­ent,” he said. “Some­times small things help some­one out and you don’t even re­alise. It’s just about tak­ing that ex­tra step to make sure she felt com­fort­able.”

Ja­son said he was hon­oured to have been nom­i­nated for the award by Mara’s hus­band Cole.

Mara used to go to Ja­son’s sa­lon reg­u­larly but due to her health she couldn’t al­ways make it. Cole Booth, Mara’s hus­band said the ar­range­ment has made it eas­ier and it means his wife con­tin­ues to look beau­ti­ful.
