An event at Linnaeus Estate, Broken Head, on the afternoon of Sunday August 13 will raise funds for The Buttery’s free family counselling program.

The event features entertainers, catering by Harvest Cafe, fine wines and an opportunity to bid for auction items, including artworks by leading local artists. 

Since its inception in 2010, The Buttery’s family counselling program has helped almost 1,000 families who face the challenge of supporting a family member who is addicted to drugs and/or alcohol.

The program is supported fully by donations from individuals and foundations, including the Northern Rivers Community Foundation.

Tickets and more information are available at http://bit.ly/butterygig.


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.
