Biggest Morning Tea coming soon!

Funds raised from Australia’s Biggest Morning tea help support, through the Cancer Council, livesaving cancer research, prevention, advocacy and support programs as well as subsidised transport to medical appointments.

Northern rivers residents are invited to host a morning tea and gather friends, family or colleagues to share food and give support to people affected by cancer. Visit or call 1300 65 65 85.

For example, the Fig Tree Restaurant (named after its historical 150-year-old fig tree) is hosting an event on Tuesday 22 May to which a multitude of sponsors have donated prizes this year, including Victoria’s at Ewingsdale, Brookfarm, The Book Room Collective and The Farm, just to name a few.

Katie Buczynski of Fig Tree says, ‘Byron Bay is an extremely close community where we support invaluable charities such as this. Each year our event showcases the baking talent and traditions of our local country community in support of the Cancer Council. Expect to taste authentic home baking at its finest.’

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”

Echonetdaily is made possible by the support of all of our advertisers and is brought to you by this week's sponsor Vast Furniture & Homewares Ballina.
