A 'Benny-fit' to help the man behind the mask

A BENEFIT show to support one of the best-known artists in the Northern Rivers has been set up for next week in Nimbin.

Artist and environmental advocate Benny Zable had a tripod collapse on him at a recent Byron Bay event.

After a brief stay in hospital, Benny has ongoing costs for his rehabilitation.
