Concert for refugees

A BUNCH of do-gooders are holding a concert later this month to raise money for refugees fleeing Afghanistan.

The Western Suburbs Do Gooders’ concert will be at the Wesley Church on the corner of William and Hay Streets on Sunday October 31 from 2pm and feature West Coast Charity Orchestra’s flagship ensembles.

WSDGers spokesperson Betty McGeever urged people to turn their compassion for refugees into action by buying tickets, with money raised going to the Centre for Asylum Seekers Refugees and Detainees.

“The work by CARAD is critical, as the instability in Afghanistan has visibly shown,” Ms McGeever said.

“When people fear for their lives they desperately seek to flee their homes with nothing much on their backs and significant support is required as they settle into their new homes and lives.”

Musos will also include West Coast Philharmonic, WA Wind Symphony, Perth Male Voice Choir, Jimjam and singer/songwriter Dawn Barrington.

Tickets ($35) include light refreshment and can be purchased from www.
