Mackin people’s day as free coffee flows

KIND-HEARTED BUSINESS MANAGER BRINGS SMILES TO CUSTOMERS’ FACES

- By Georgia Rossiter

Early morning customers at the Butter Factory Cafe in Shepparton were treated with a free coffee, thanks to Jarrod Mackin on Saturday.

The manager of L&P Mackin Forklifts was doing the usual morning coffee run for himself and his workmates when he was told someone had already paid for his order.

In response, Mr Mackin paid it forward again, giving $100 to cover some future coffee orders.

“With everything that’s going on at the moment, it’s just a nice thing to be able to do,” Mr Mackin said.

“To be able to help people out and just brighten someone’s day up.”

Mr Mackin ended up shouting 25 people coffee, and owner Chris Reisner said customers were thrilled and “grateful” for the small act of kindness.

“Everyone was stoked,” he said.

Mr Mackin was already at work by the time the next customers visited the cafe´ and missed the reactions.

“When I actually walked out there was no-one there,” he said with a laugh.

“I’m usually there at about 6.30 on a Saturday morning, it

would have been people in after me.”

He hopes everyone in the community continues to rally

around each other and pay the kindness forward.

“It’s really nice to see other people doing the same thing

around the area,” Mr Mackin said.

“Just put a smile on people’s faces and make them feel good about themselves.”
