CANCELLED SOUTHBOUND SUPPORTING FIRE EMERGENCY

Posted in fremantle, western australia by freoview on January 8, 2016

It is fantastic to see that ticket holders, events organisers Sunset Events, and food stall operators are trying to support the bushfire victims down south after the cancellation of SOUTHBOUND. This message below came through on Facebook and well done to everyone to show your support and empathy and realise that the cancellation of a music festival is nothing compared to the loss of homes, livestock, etc!

“We’ve been overwhelmed with the support shown over the last 11 hours since our announcement that Southbound 2016 has had to be cancelled due to high fire risk within the area. We’ve had a lot of feedback regarding patrons wanting to donate both part or their entire ticket refund to those affected by the fire. We are currently working to set up a system where this can be facilitated. We have excess food on site which we will be offering to those who are both working to fight the fires and affected and currently working with the relevant parties to make this happen. We’ll keep you updated as we work on both of these initiatives. We are gutted but trying to turn our disappointment in not being able to deliver Southbound to you into a positive thing for those affected by the fires.”

FREO COMMUNITY RAISES $ 30,000 FOR NEPAL!

Posted in earthquake, fremantle, nepal by freoview on June 20, 2015

Well done to all the hardworking and passionately committed people in the Fremantle community who organised the RESTORING NEPAL CONCERT and other events. I was just told that close to $ 30,000 was raised for the earthquake victims in Nepal.

So a very, very big THANK YOU! to the musicians from Empire Blues, Mutima Band and the Nervous investors, and to those who donated items for the raffle, and the Fremantle Sailing Club for supplying the venue.

It gives one a real warm and fuzzy feeling to see that people do care, even about countries and people they have never met. Well done all and thank you so much!
