Community Fun Day Sunday


You’ve all seen the devastation of drought. How can you help? Come to our ‘About For Drought’ fundraiser this Sunday October 14 at the Grafton Racecourse. All proceeds go to Aussie Helpers charity.

About For Drought started as an idea for a raffle with a local junior soccer club and morphed into a massive fundraiser.  Markets, community stalls, food vans, stage performances, free kids’ activities, lucky door prizes, sausage sizzle, raffle, not to mention an auction. You can even join in a rain dance!

You’ll have the opportunity to write a ‘Note For Hope’ to a farmer family, letting them know they are not forgotten and that our community appreciates all that they do for us. These personal notes will be packed in hampers delivered by Aussie Helpers.

The wider community has been extremely generous. We have received prize donations from local small businesses and community groups to government departments and nationwide corporations.

The level of understanding and kind support has been outstanding. It just goes to show how much people truly care about our farmers in the grip of this devastating drought.

Entry to the Community Fun Day on Sunday October 14 is a gold coin donation and the event runs from 10am to 3pm. BYO picnic rug and chairs.

We look forward to sharing this memorable day with you.

Now you’re here …

… the Independent would like to ask for your support. The community is reading our paper more than ever and embracing the content we produce, but advertising revenues across the media as a whole, are falling. Unlike other news organizations we do not charge for our publication – so, to keep our community connected and deliver the local news to your door we would like to ask for your help..... to keep the Independent bringing you all the local community news takes a lot of time, hard work and people power, But we do it because we believe our presence matters – who else tells it how it is, where it is, and what it is.

If you like our journalism, if you like the community news, if you like our sports coverage we would love it if you could help fund it, our future may depend on it. For as little as $5, you can support the Independent – Thank you.
