Drought-stricken farmers are soon to benefit from a fundraising event held last weekend across Australia.

Organisers say money raised for the Let it Pour campaign will go to the Drought Relief Fund, administered by Rotary Australia.

While 380 venues signed up across NSW, locally, organisers say The Byron Bay Services Club, The Mullum Ex-Services, the Lennox Point Hotel and Lennox Head Community Sports Club, the Ocean Shores Country Club and the Ocean Shores Tavern were on board.
