Harvest-Flood-452x640

Thank you to all the people who saw the publicity in The Echo and went to Harvest in Newrybar. $20,000 was raised for Lismore flood victims. $10,500 has gone to @FlockEspressoLismore so they can reopen their cafe. This is the exact amount they will pay for bond on their new place. The remaining $9,500 of funds will be distributed to the public through a community project.

Harvest general manage Moira Waterfall said, ‘The fundraising began with the @harvestdeli coffee cart’s gold coin initiative that raised $500. The Harvest restaurant staff raised $1,200 in tips in four days, As a team, we all wanted to do something more, and because of the support of so many sponsors the event was terrifically successful. This is community and hospitality at its finest.’
