Local musicians Mary Evans and Daun Crozier are using their talent to raise money for wildlife that has been affected by bushfires.

They usually run their gospel singalong sessions for the benefit of St Paul’s Church in Bridgetown, but were inspired to turn their fundraising attention to wildlife.

“I wasn’t sure whether we should avoid songs about fire, as you know, a lot of the gospel songs do mention the elements, but I think that’s all part and parcel,” Miss Evans said. “I think maybe Wade in the Water might be a very good one to do.”

The money will go to the New South Wales Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service.

“People have been coming up to me in the street or at my work and saying that they are very interested, and have been telling everyone,” Miss Evans said.

“For the older generation who don’t go online to donate, we can do that for them, if they bring a physical donation.”

The singalong starts at 5.30pm on February 19 at St Paul’s Church in Bridgetown.
