GEORGE the snake handler does stirling service for the Byron Shire community, for very little reward other than the grateful thanks he receives from those whose snake crises he solves.

So it was a bright spot for him indeed this month when the proceeds from two raffles at a 60th birthday party were donated to him.

Eric Bridgeman, of Suffolk Park, had his 60th birthday party at Ewingsdale Hall on New Year's Day, during which the raffles were held.

The sale of the tickets and some of Eric's memorabilia and art collected $400.

"George was the recipient of these funds, both in recognition of his value to the Byron Shire and to keep him on the road and put bread on his table," said Eric's partner, Annabelle Sinclair.
