Last Tuesday, 11 April, hundreds of Mullumbimby locals flocked to a ‘pizza night’ fundraising event in support of Lismore flood relief. The event was initiated by Jose Raez of Almond Road Bakery, with produce, desserts and services donated by numerous local businesses.
The Byron Food Hub carpark became a makeshift pallet dining room where people gathered under a full moon, enjoying tasty pizza and the music of talented local musicians, among them Stu and Amber of Mullum Uke.
The team turned out 300 pizzas over three hours, impressively raising more than $4,500, which will be donated to the Lismore Gofundme campaign set up by Lismore Council.
‘I was grateful for the support of the community, and the enormous number of people who turned up on the night’, said Jose.
