I have never done this before but Lola and George's story struck a chord with me when I read it in the paper, and I knew I had to try to help this lovely couple save the home where they want to see out their twilight years.

Heritage listed as one of Melbourne's oldest buildings, Russell's Old Corner Shop was built in 1850. Lola has lived there since she was one-month old and inherited the building in 1970. She and George, and their family before them, have maintained this precious old building over the decades but they don't have the money needed to save it from collapse now.

I'm always banging on about the importance of preserving Melbourne's heritage buildings so it's time to practice what I preach and throw my weight behind Lola and George's cause.

Please help me to help them save this Melbourne treasure.
