Farmers kick in for Lynda

When the organisers of the Lismore Farmers’ Market raffle found out that the winning ticket belonged to Audrey Mallaby, whose daughter Lynda recently lost her house in a fire that was the result of a lightning strike, they doubled the amount of produce and chucked in another $100 on top.

Last Saturday, Audrey was at the market buying fresh produce to make something to sell in the kitchen at The Channon Hall that night as part of a fundraising gig called ‘Burning Down the House’.

The gig was a huge success with more than 200 people turning up and raising $2000 towards Lynda’s re-building fund.

“Virtually the whole community turned up. It was a very successful evening,” Audrey said.
