The Ballina Region for Refugees turned a drizzly, grey Sunday into FUNdraising. Photo supplied.

Members and friends of Ballina Region for Refugees (BR4R) were part of a nationwide event on the weekend.

The group set off on a 5-kilometre fundraising walk on a drizzly, grey Sunday, but with spirits undampened.

This walk was a fundraising walk for the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre in Melbourne, which helps asylum seekers with food, shelter, healthcare, advocacy and other needs.

BR4R raised over $5000 and were among 311 people across the country whose combined efforts raised $145,000.
