Supporting a Good Cause

This is the message the Animal Sanctuary sent out in their e-mail newsletter after we played for them at their annual supporters picnic. Playing music for an afternoon seems a tiny and insignificant donation in the face of the great work they do there rescuing and rehabilitating native birds. They are a cause worth supporting!

We truly enjoyed having a good number of our Sanctuary Supporters visit on Sunday for a tour, picnic and live music. It was wonderful to meet so many of our Supporters in person. Most had never been here before, so it was a treat to be able to show them around and introduce them to the animals. The weather started off a bit dark and gloomy with spots of rain, so we moved the whole gig indoors. The band put away their PA system and played “unplugged”. But during the tour the sky brightened, the sun came out, and the picnic was outdoors in the sun after all! Perfect. Special thanks to our Supporters who made the trip up; to my husband Michael and wwoofers Barbara & Riccardo, who spent many hours spiffing up, mowing lawns, cleaning windows etc (there’s nothing like visitors to bring on a good spring clean!); to Dayna & Quinten for baking heaps of scrumptious cruelty-free cakes and cupcakes; to Kirsty & Kris for all their help before, during and after. And especially to the wonderful blue grass band, The Pipi Pickers, who provided such fabulous music for our event. Much appreciated, everyone!!
