Congratulations to Australia’s Outstanding Bravery Medal winner, Milingimbi‘s very own Shane Tipungwuti. After courageously saving a young boy from drowning in a well and performing CPR he is a well deserving winner. ALPA is proud to have assisted with some transport costs to get Shane and his family to the ceremony.
ALPA is committed to local Indigenous
employment. This year we will spend over $8,000,000 in real wages, for over 450
Indigenous staff in the group. Our stores are the hubs of their communities and
a significant contributor to their economic development.
