Coming soon to the Lennox Head Cultural Centre is a musical fundraiser to help underprivileged children in West Africa. Photo supplied.

One of Australia’s finest folk and roots duos, Ash Bell and Sara Tindley, will perform live at the Lennox Head Cultural Centre on Friday 18 November 2022. This event will raise funds for the Sierra Learners Association to help underprivileged children in West Africa.

Sarah King, Founder of Sierra Learners Association, is proud to bring the event to Lennox Head.

She said, ‘All proceeds from the event will help provide quality education for underprivileged children in schools and communities through libraries and scholarships in Sierra Leone, West Africa.

‘Funds also help us to engage the services of young capable women as library teachers to support the children with reading,’ said Ms King.

‘It will be a wonderful evening of music that we hope will result in a big boost to our fundraising efforts, especially after losing so many books in the Lismore floods that were destined for the children in West Africa.’

Since 2012, Sierra Learners have been offering education opportunities for children who would otherwise be left behind, by providing books, computers and libraries.

Ash and Sara coming soon!

A beautiful musical collaboration

Ash Bell and Sara Tindley are two of the Northern Rivers’ most celebrated singer/songwriters. Together, they form a timeless folk and roots collaboration combining tough love and deep humanity.

Sara Tindley has just released a new album to join her other acclaimed solo recordings, and has also recorded an EP with Ash Bell, formerly of Starboard Cannons and well known in his own right on the festival circuit.

Supporting them at Lennox Head Cultural Centre on 18 November will be Sylvie Millard, performing a soulful set of original songs.

Tickets are $25, plus booking fee, and children under 16 are free. Tickets to the fundraising event are available online, please visit www.communityspaces.com.au/tickets.
