Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: The End of an Era

As the Entertainment Editor I have interviewed some very interesting people. Like the multi-orgasmic man; a Dutch orgasm coach living in a yurt, and Tim (Pricasso) who paints with his penis. I have also interviewed musicians. Probably not quite as interesting as the aforementioned group, but whose stories and chats have formed a wonderful part of my week over the last two decades. I have had the privilege of talking to some of my heroes.

If you know of, or are a part of, an organisation within the Byron Shire that is making a difference within your community and in need of a helping hand, Splendour in the Grass wants to hear from you.

Organisers say Splendour is ‘committed to giving back to its home of over 18 years through its Community Grants Fund, which supports important local initiatives throughout the Byron Shire’.

$630,000 so far

Through the fund, Splendour says it has provided over $630,000 in cash and prize donations to local charities, schools, and community organisations.

Splendour’s co-producers Jessica Ducrou and Paul Piticco say, ‘After almost 20 years of Splendour in the Byron Shire, we’re thrilled to finally call North Byron Parklands our forever home’.

‘Being able to stage our event here permanently strengthens our commitment to support the local community in which we operate.

Visit Splendour community grants for more info, or alternatively, email [email protected] to receive a copy of the application form. Deadline for submissions is June 28.


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
