Ballina Dragons invite public to have a go

The Ballina Dragon Boat Racing Club is having a come and try day on Saturday 6 March, on the Richmond River at Ballina.

If you managed to stay awake until dawn on New Year’s Day, spare a thought for for a group of hardy photographers who will be seeing a sunrise every day for a month as part of a charity project.

Beginning on 15 January, a group of volunteers will begin ‘a 30-day journey to capture the perfect shot of our beautiful Northern Rivers sunrise for charity,’ says director of The Endless Sunrise, Stefan José.

Stefan’s local production company, Worx, and Common Ground Byron Bay have come together to create the project, which will fund two fantastic causes: Positive Change For Marine Life and the Jonno Howell Photographic Scholarship Fund.

Jonno Howell was a young local surfer who tragically died last year. The purpose of the fund is to support and nurture photographic talent through a scholarship in Jonno’s name.

The group is still seeking photographers– professional, amateur, aspiring or anyone with a camera – to take up the challenge.

Each participants will be asked to find sponsors who will pay them on a per-sunrise basis: the more they managed shoot, the more money they rase.

At the end of the 30 days there will be a charity gig at The Stone and Wood brewery featuring many local artists.

For more information go the Endless Sunrise Facebook page.
