WHEN Scott Nevill was airlifted from Skipton to Melbourne last year after a serious car crash, he knew he was in debt to emergency services who saved his life.
Now he is showing his gratitude to ambulance services in his own special way.
Mr Nevill, who only two weeks ago co-founded new company Graffiti Removal Ballarat, has been busy trying to rid the St John Ambulance training centre of the graffiti that has plagued it for years.
Although Mr Nevill was cared for by Ambulance Victoria at the time of his accident, he said he owed his gratitude to all emergency services and community organisations.
And if removing graffiti off their buildings free of charge was his way of showing thanks, then it was definitely worth it.
“If it was not for them I’d be dead,” he said.
“It’s just our way of showing thanks and admiring the great work they do. We are up for any sort of thing to get behind a good community organisation.”
Mr Nevill was out removing the graffiti with business partner Damian Cutler on Saturday night but unfortunately, had to return to the same spot again yesterday.
“We put the work into the roller doors to clean the paint and within two days they (vandals) came back and ruined it again,” he said.
“It’s all over Ballarat so hopefully we start to get rid of it.”
