The town of Walgett, in northern NSW sadly lost its only supermarket in a fire on 5 June 2019. The Supa IGA was the only supermarket in drought-stricken Walgett, with the next closest source of food and supplies over 80 kilometres away in Lightning Ridge. 

Dharriwaa Elders Group (DEG) has established a fundraising appeal for donations to fund food, groceries and drinking water for Walgett residents (Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal), to be distributed according to greatest need. 

Find out more about the appeal.
