Once again, Adelaide community is being rallied to answer the call of those directly impacted by the Pinery Bushfire and surrounding communities.

On Sunday, January 10 we will play host to a family friendly fundraiser event with live bands, sausage sizzle, kid’s activities and raffles. All funds raised on the day, will be donated to the Pinery bushfire community and related aid appeal associations.
