At a fabulous gala event earlier this month, five locals teamed up with local dance teachers to raise money for the Cancer Council NSW (CCNSW).

The Stars of Byron Shire Dance For Cancer showcased the performers, including deputy mayor Basil Cameron and Bay FM’s Danny Salfield.

Hannah Brooks community relations co-ordinator for CCNSW said: ‘It was an amazing community event that has raised an incredible $15,000 for Cancer Council NSW.’

A great show was put on by all the performers at the Mullumbimby Services Club and the ‘community was in high spirits and everyone we’ve spoken to about the night had a ball,’ said Hannah.
