Gunnedah’s Sister City Lane Cove has hosted a fundraiser in a show of support for our drought-stricken Shire.
Gunnedah Shire Acting Mayor Rob Hooke this month attended the Rain Bringer Christmas Concert at Hunters Hill, part of Lane Cove’s campaign in support of Gunnedah.
“It was an amazing night,” Cr Hooke said.
“Our city cousins showed they were there for us to help in any way possible and to let us know that we are all in this together.
“It was a wonderful show of support.
“There have been many relationships formed in local government, but few would be as strong and meaningful as the one Gunnedah Shire has with Lane Cove.”
The Rain Bringer Concert included performances by Hunters Hill High School, Lane Cove Youth Orchestra and other guests from participating schools.
Besides ticket entry, funds were raised through “rain sticks” beautifully made within Lane Cove, and the sale of “raindrops” to be used in a creative, music-making roof and water spout.
