Uniting together tastes good
Everyone needs to eat breakfast and there's nothing like a bit of good company to sprinkle over your egg and bacon roll.
Five times a year Ray and Lola Ingram from the Lismore Uniting Church Regional Mission organise a big community breakfast where people enjoy good food and all the money helps local charities. The first was held at the John Gibson Angus Cattle Stud at South Gundurimba in September 2002, and 30 people turned up. They have around 120 hungry patrons attending these days and have donated funds to all sorts of causes from the Life Saver Rescue Helicopter to Indonesia tsunami victims and most recently $600 to the Our House project, which will accommodate patients and their families who are receiving cancer treatment in Lismore.
The next breakfast is coming up at the end of the month at Wyrallah Hall and Ray is encouraging people who haven't given it a try to come for a bite to eat.
"Everyone is welcome, we just need to know numbers," Ray said. "One or two drop-ins doesn't make any difference but 22 more might - in saying that we haven't run out of food yet!"
The next breakfast is February 25 at Wyrallah Hall and costs $10 per person or $20 for a family. RSVP to Ray on 6621 6165.
