This year’s Lighthouse Run, the 13th, raised $20,000 for local charities, says co-ordinator and founder Lisa Parkes.
She presented $10,000 to Mullum Neighbourhood Centre and a legal service last Friday, while she says the other $10,000 has been donated to Headspace Lismore.
Eight thousand dollars of the money will go to the Neighbourhood Centre’s Escape Fund, which assists women and children escaping domestic violence.
The remaining $2,000 will go towards Barefoot Law for their work with women in crisis. Lisa added: ‘Thanks for the sponsorship by Fusion Oriental Botanicals covering the costs – all the entry fees are donated.’
