The local townships of Bangalow and Mullumbimby have been working hard to raise awareness of the drought, raise funds and provide assistance to help drought-affected communities in Bingara and the broader Gwydir Shire.
The Bangalow Adopts Bingara True Grit Fundraising Dinner, at the Bangalow Hotel on Saturday evening, helped raise more than $35,000.
The evening included Kerry O’Brien interviewing local identity Jan Hubert, who was born in Bangalow Hospital, about growing up, life and the changes she has seen in the town. Kerry also spoke with Damien Crump, a farmer from Bingara, on the impact of drought on Bangalow’s sister town out west.
Join in the next fundraiser for drought relief, a pizza night at the Main Arm Store on October 19 from 6pm.
