Red Cross and Surf Aid Combined relief concerts
2 February 2005
FOR IMMEDIATE USE
New Zealand Red Cross and Surf Aid International Combined relief concerts
The Wellington City Council along with several Wellington musicians and bands will come together on February 13 to offer both their facilities and time to raise further support of the ‘South Asia Tsunami Appeal’.
This specifically is a Wellington effort and is significant from several points of view.
There are nine bands involved, all giving their time ‘Free’ to help raise funds for both Surf Aid and Red Cross. Both Aid organisations will benefit equally from the proceeds. This co-operation between the two aid agencies signifies the co-operation that does and can occur between organisations when faced with a disaster of this magnitude.
The groups who have kindly volunteered their time are: -
- Rhian Sheehan & guests
- Flash Harry & The Future of Love
- Malia Patea-Taylor
- The Beat Girls
- Twin Set
- Uncle Monkey
