Bushfire benefit concert


Pakenham Lions Club’s Need for Feed will be hosting a bushfire benefit concert at Healesville Racecourse as part of their ongoing support to help farmers in need.

The bushfire benefit concert will feature eight hours of continuous music across two stages. The event will feature artists and bands such as The Black Sorrows, Travis Collins, The Badloves, Goanna’s Shane Howard, Redgum’s John Schuman, Pete Denahy and many more.

The event will feature a charity auction, a car show and cruise, food trucks as the racecourse bar.

Graham Cockerell founded Need for Feed after seeing the devastation of the 2006 East Gippsland fires to deliver emergency fodder and transport to farmers in drought, fire and flood affected areas.

Over $3.5 million dollars-worth of fodder – which equates to around 19,000 large rounds of hay – was donated and delivered to farming families in in need in 2018 alone.

The event will take place on 29 February from 2.30pm.
