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.’


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.
