On New Year’s Eve, the historic town of Cobargo, NSW was devastated by bushfires in Australia this summer. It has been incredibly heart-warming to see people around the world donating to fire fighters, wildlife, and charities supporting people affected by these monumental fires. This town is close to Jenny’s heart, and she was set to play at their festival in February. With the heaviest of hearts, they have had to cancel the Cobargo Folk Festival this February, as many of the volunteers have lost their homes. 3 lives were lost, 88 homes destroyed and hundreds of wildlife perished. While many funds have been raised, this town is yet to benefit from them, and they desperately need funds to begin to restore their lives. Director of the festival, Zena Armstrong has set up a GoFundMe page for anyone who may be able to donate.
Visit their GoFundMe page for more details, and if you can give, big or small, it will make the world of difference to this beautiful community.
Jenny will have a collection bucket on her Australia 2020 Tour to continue to raise money for this beautiful community. Check out her tour dates
