Extinction Rebellion Northern Illawarra will hold a vigil and fundraiser on Saturday the 11th of January at 6pm at Austinmer Beach promenade, in solidarity with those affected by the bushfires and to raise money for the RFS.
The event will include live music by Elana Stone, Holly Throsby and performers from the Honk festival, and a bake sale to raise funds for the RFS. There will be speeches by Wollongong Councillor Mithra Cox and UOW Senior Research Fellow on bushfire smoke, Owen Price.
The community is invited to attend the vigil, bring family and friends, bring a home-made cake to sell at the fundraiser and come support the RFS and affected communities.
If you do plan to bake something to fundraise with, Northern Illawarra Extinction Rebellion asks you to please consider bringing it in a reusable container and minimising waste wherever possible, i.e. no single-use plastics or disposable materials please.
