Byron Bay’s Hello Sunday Morning, in fact held last Saturday at Apex Park, was a great success with about 500 people enjoying the morning.

Feather, Tommy Franklin and Sergio Naranjarte took part in the event that aims to raise awareness around excessive alcohol consumption.

The vibe was great, the community really got involved and no one was afraid to join in and dance,’ said one of the organisers Grace Enright.

‘Tommy helped set the tone as he is so infectious when he dances, you can’t wipe the smile off your face when you watch him. It was great to see people of all ages and both men and women join in!’

There are four more Hello Sunday Morning dance parties coming up, the next one is in Melbourne this Sunday and then the Sunday after they will be in Hobart and then Fremantle and ending the campaign in Sydney. 

‘Because Hello Sunday Morning offers digital support and we have a large network of people all over the world, having these physical events locally is a great way for us to spread awareness for our mission, to change Australia’s drinking culture, one Sunday at a time! Empowering people to find a great relationship with alcohol, whether that means cutting back or quitting altogether,’ finished grace.
