s p a c e is proud to launch a nationwide series of Ambitious Conversations

Byron Bay’s homelessness and disadvantaged support service, Fletcher Street Cottage, is set to be boosted by funds, after the recent Festival of the Stone, held by Stone & Wood, raised $20,000 for the charity.

Organisers say over 1,800 locals attended on Saturday June 4, with all profits made from ticket and bar sales, as well as a series of raffles, going ‘directly to the not-for-profit who offer meals, showers, laundry, advocacy, and support to those in need’.

Sally Gilbert from Stone & Wood said, ‘Holding it in support of such an important issue for our region, just adds that extra layer of meaning’.


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.
