WOOLGOOLGA'S Sikh community is raising money for the South-East Asian tsunami appeal this weekend.
Members of the community in the Woolgoolga and Coffs Harbour districts are collecting money to present to Red Cross representatives tomorrow.
The president of the Gur Nanak Sikh Temple Committee, Gurdev Singh Sidhu, said the tragic, unexpected tsunami disaster had touched the hearts of the Indian community of Woolgoolga and surrounding areas.
"We are praying for our suffering neighbours and the families of fellow Australians who lost their loved ones or are still waiting to hear the news about their loved ones," Mr Sidhu said. "We urge everyone to work together to assist those affected by the tragedy."
