Gwydir Industries' major fundraiser, Dancing with the Stars, has been postponed until 2021.

The biennial event was due to be held in March this year, with a date and dancers locked in, however last week the Gwydir Industries board made the decision to postpone it for a year.

The popular event was due to be held in March this year, with a date and dancers locked in, however last week the Gwydir Industries board made the decision to postpone it for a year.

President Peter Weal said the decision to postpone the event is mostly due to the ongoing drought which has severely impacted the local community.

"We get great community support but we didn't want to put undue pressure on our sponsors and supporters given the current circumstances, so we thought we should postpone it until March 2021," he said.

"We had a date and had organised dancers, so it's really disappointing for our dancers, but hopefully this will give them a year's more practise to perfect their dances."

Although the Dancing with the Stars event won't be held, the board will still be running a major car raffle.

First prize is a brand new Toyota Yaris, while other prizes include an M&G Travel voucher, a BP fuel voucher and garden furniture.

Tickets are $10 and can be purchased from Gwydir Industries.

The raffle will be drawn on June 30.

All money raised from the raffle will go back into the general running of Gwydir Industries.
