Byron Bay Golf Club has thrown its support behind Byron Youth Service – Street Cruise with a Fundraiser on Sunday July 14 from 10am to 6pm.

Teams of four will be able to register at 10am for an 11am start with prizes for the three best winning teams.

BYS staff and volunteers will be running a barbeque all day and local businesses have generously donated prizes for a raffle. ‘Walrus and the Carpenter’ will be entertaining guests with beautiful tunes after 4pm.

The support of local golfers in either forming a team, participating in the raffle or just coming for the music will be greatly appreciated! Alternatively donations can be made online via the website www.bys.org.au.

Street Cruise workers have been walking the streets of Byron since 2001 and in 2011 purchased a mobile outreach bus with a federal government grant.

These services, known as Street Cruise, help to create a safer community in Byron Shire by supporting young people on the street after hours.

Their aim is to provide late-night prevention and early intervention services and offer support for young people on the streets where binge drinking, vandalism and violence may occur.

Trained youth workers are available to assist with issues that may arise within a potentially volatile environment.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
