Fundraising for Lismore continues with Arterial: art, eats, beats. The Clunes fundraiser this Sunday 23 April will bring together an exciting range of art, live music, food, coffee, workshops, retail.
‘We had a think about about how we can best help small businesses,’ said one of the organisers Leah Holm.
‘We wanted to showcase what Lismore had to offer.’
Various Lismore businesses will be showcasing their wares, many of them who are just recovering from the flooding.
‘Flock Espresso and Eats lost their premises and at the cost of tens of thousands of dollars they have moved to a new premises and get set up again. During this time they have kept paying 15 staff members.,’ said Leah.
‘The Bircher Bar also had to close for about two weeks. They won’t be able to do the cafe set up but will be bringing their pantry products including relishes and local cheeses.
‘This is about showing people in the region what Lismore has to offer and that it is a great place to do business.’
Coffeee, jewellery, clothes, food and music are just some of the great Lismore delights that will be on display.
‘There will be a jumping castle and kids workshops by the barefoot gypsies and lots of other things,’ continued Leah.
