In a gift from one sustainable operation to another – local energy provider Enova Energy has donated $3,750 to local food-rescue organisation Liberation Larder.

Enova Energy CEO Felicity Stening presented the charity with the funds yesterday (Thursday) thanks to the generosity of new Enova customers each of whom chose to donate $50.

‘We are utterly thrilled to be giving this money to such an important local institution in the Northern Rivers thanks to the generosity of our customers,’ Ms Stening said.

‘Our customers are willing to put themselves aside to support other local people in need. At the same time, they’ve chosen an energy provider that is actively making a difference to the local economy and to achieving a renewable energy future.’

Liberation Larder receives leftover food from local supermarkets and other outlets and provides it to the community in the form of free breakfasts and lunches during the week.

    Great initiative. Will help the Larder pay the landlords (the so called Byron Community Centre) for the Larders use of the space

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.”
