Saturday night’s Stand Together will raise money for headspace Dubbo which provides psychological, medical, vocational and educational help to young people in the city and surrounding communities.

The event will include performances by musicians John Tennyson, One Proud Monkey’s Clinton Hoy, John Hausia, Heidi Maree and the band RiSK, and an address by Riverbank Frank.

Mr Tennyson’s mental health challenges prompted the organisation of the fundraiser at the Milestone Hotel in Dubbo from 6pm.

“I know that without the support of friends, family and community, I wouldn’t be standing here now,” he said. “That’s why the event is named Stand Together.” 

Amy Mines, community and youth engagement coordinator for headspace Dubbo, said its team was honoured to have the need for its work recognised.

“It is always a pleasure to work with and support young aspiring people, especially musicians who use their music as an outlet and a way to connect with others,” she said.

Tickets are limited and available at 123tix.com.au.
