Friends Jeddah Ruediger and Frankie Charles rattled white buckets as they walked the dining room floor at the Byron Bay Golf Club yesterday, Saturday, March 4.
Tinnie Heroes was about to screen and they were collecting money for the Northern Rivers Flood Action Group based in Woodburn.
Golf club general manager Shaun Breheny and business development officer Sue Charles decided to show the short film to Byron Bay locals.
IndyNR.com editor Susanna Freymark asked whether people could make a gold coin donation when seeing the film with the money to go back into Woodburn where a lot of the film was shot.
The golf club agreed and decided to match the donations that night – dollar for dollar.
At the end of the night, there was $750 in the buckets and Byron Bay Golf Club matched that amount.
The club made out a $1500 cheque to the Northern Rivers Flood Action Group.
The group plans to make gardens around the Woodburn Memorial Hall.
