There was water up over the bar last week but that hasn’t stopped Billinudgel Hotel going ahead with this Sunday’s Nudge, Nudge, Wink, Wink fundraiser for for Murwillumbah community centre.

Billnudgel Hotel has suffered extensively from the disaster of cyclone Debbie with losses and damage of over $20,000.

Nudge, Nudge, Wink, Wink starts at 2pm Sunday, 9 April. DJ’s Astro Black, Stevie Starz, Dale Stephen and Lord Sut will donate their time for free and there will be loads of raffles.

On average we raise about $5,000 each week. This is donated to the selected local charity.
