The Sir Ivan Bushfire Benefit Concert next weekend will give the Dunedoo area a helping hand and the chance for a good time.

“[The mood] is getting a little better, I was working in a hardware store where a lot of people were coming in buying fencing and irrigation materials, and it was a very somber mood,” organiser Rob Whackett said.

“But I think by the time next weekend comes around we’re going to want to let our hair down and talk to each other about what we’ve been through.

“That in itself is going to be a good thing for everyone and hopefully it will also raise some good funds to put towards whatever these people need to help them out.”

Artists include Altiyan Childs, Adam Eckersley, Jade Martin, and Jess Holland. 

“We’ve got some great artists, nine in total, they’re all on board and doing pretty much cost-free,” Mr Whackett said.

“It’s at the Dunedoo Sports Club, same as Tunes on the Turf, so that made it easier in terms of setting it up.”

Buses will be running from Mudgee, tickets at trybooking.com/pglm
