I have not received official figures from the Fremantle Arts Centre, but the West Australian reported today that the two FIRE AID concerts on the weekend raised over $ 650,000 for the victims of the bushfires in the eastern states. That is massive!

A big thank you to all the artists and all the crew behind the scenes who gave up their time to support those who were affected by the awful fires. THANK YOU!

NEW FREO FIRE FUND WEBSITE

A new Freo Fire Fund website has been launched to help people raise money to support the communities affected Australia’s devastating bushfires.

The website – freofirefund.wixsite.com/mysite – allows people looking to raise money for bushfire relief to register an official Freo Fire Fund event and download a handy event kit with information and promotional material.

It also has a Freo Fire Fund events calendar, information about the fund and where the money raised will go and a link where people can donate directly to the fund.

The Freo Fire Fund was set up last week by a group of Fremantle community members who came together to collaborate, share skills and resources and raise money to help fire-affected communities.

The fund is held by the Fremantle Foundation as a separate Named Fund.

Fremantle Foundation Chair Carrie Clark said the money raised will be distributed to not-for-profit organisations that are assisting with the bushfire relief effort.

“The fund has identified a number of different focus areas where the money raised can be directed, including emergency assistance for people displaced by the fires, support for volunteer bushfire brigades and care for wildlife affected by the fires,” Ms Clark said.

“A full list of organisations that may receive funds is available on the website, but they include organisations like Australian Red Cross, Foodbank and the Australian Wildlife Conservancy.

“People hosting registered fundraising events or activities can nominate which specific focus areas they wish to donate to, and as the bushfire relief effort evolves the recipient list will be updated in response to community needs.”

To find out more about bushfire fundraising activities, register an event or learn more about the fund visit the Freo Fire Fund website.

It is amazing that so many people from all over the world are donating for the bushfire victims, and the entire city of Fremantle seems to have mobilised with many fundraising events.

There is a concert at the Port Beach Bar on the 12th from 1-7pm, all the bar profits of the South Freo Percy Flint bar on the 12th will also go to the fire victims, the Navy Club will also have a concert on the 24th, and there is heaps more going to happen all around Fremantle.

One of the biggest fundraisers no doubt will be the concert at the Fremantle Arts Centre on January 31 with John Butler, the Waifs, San Cisco, and Stella Donnelly. Tickets at FAC.OZTIX.COM.AU

We can all be proud to live in a city where the community really cares about others! Well done all who are given their time and for all the many donations!
