Food, wine expo supports chopper

FINE wine and fine food will be the order of the day at Wollongbar on Saturday, June 26, and it’s all in aid of the Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter.

The Northern Rivers Food and Wine Expo will be held at the Wollongbar TAFE campus from 10am-3pm.

It’s a great chance to experience the fine food and wine the Northern Rivers has to offer, meet local producers and enjoy the entertainment.

There will be music and street characters, balloons, train rides and a Mad Hatter’s tea party.

Expo merchandise is available, with all proceeds being donated to the Northern Region Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter.

The helicopter has an annual operating budget of $6.5 million and relies on the support of the community to raise the money for the lifesaving service.

Entry to the food and wine expo is: Adults $5; children aged 13-17 years, a gold coin donation; and free for children under 12 years.
