Laurieton market stall - June 18, 2016

The Mid North Coast Refugee Support Group team will be at the Laurieton Riverwalk Markets on Sunday June 18.
Come and say hello, buy some produce and help raise awareness for Refugee Week.
Laurieton Riverwalk Markets are held on the 3rd Sunday of every month at Bruce Porter Reserve, on the banks of the beautiful Camden Haven River at Laurieton.
The Riverwalk Markets showcase local produce, gourmet foods, arts and craft, plants, bric-a-brac and live music. 

Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC) fundraiser
ASRC will hold a fundraising Telethon from 7am - 8:30pm on Monday June 20 (World Refugee Day) - call 1300 MYASRC (1300 692 772) to make a donation.
The Telethon aims to bring awareness to the 1,500 refugees who are bravely protesting and fighting for their freedom on Manus and Nauru, plus the estimated 24,500 people in Australia now who are fighting for their freedom, with little/no access to justice. 
The goal is to raise $100,000 during the Telethon which can provide over 3,000 hours of legal assistance so people's claims can be heard, and they have a fighting chance to find safety here in Australia.
