Council cancels carbs and cocktails for February

HEALTH and sobriety will be the priority for Richmond Valley Council this month.

Employees at the council have decided to take on the Febfast Challenge where they will hit paus on alcohol and sugar for the next 29 days to raise vital funds for disadvantaged youth across NSW, including our very own Northern Rivers area.

Can you help them reach their fundraising goal?

Whether it's $5 or $50, every dollar helps. 

You can donate here.  

Just $5 could run a few washing cycles for a young person sleeping rough, $30 could fund an hour of therapy for a young person using drugs or alcohol to escape past trauma, or $100 could train a youth worker to directly reach out to a young person in need to help.

Staff involved include:

Aidan Macqueen    

Ben West      

Daniel Parker

Gary Ellem   

Hayley Hancock      

Kelly Moroney         

Marie Cullen

Ngarie Macqueen   

Paul Cowles

Penny Robertson

Richard Davies       

Sharon Davidson   

Sue-Ellen Little
