Surf Life Saving Far North Coast Branch Inc has announced Tursa Employment & Training sponsorship of $10,000 for a new branch fund, intended to provide funding for surf clubs from Yamba to the New South Wales-Queensland border.

‘Clubs will be able to apply for assistance for funding for essential equipment, events or specific training’, said Wilson Cregan President of Surf Life Saving Far North Coast Branch Inc. ‘Funding will be on a 50/50 basis.’

Mr Cregan said that TURSA had been involved with Surf Life Saving on the NSW Far North Coast for over eight years and this new sponsorship ($10,000) will assist with building the branch’s new funding initiative and hopefully by their example encourage other business sponsors to come on board as well.’

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
