The Wiggles will be in Lismore for one day only, performing two shows on the afternoon of November 18 at Goonellabah Sports and Aquatic Centre. There will be a 2.30pm and a 5.00pm session.

Blue Wiggle, Anthony Field said the group had been devastated to see the challenges people in Lismore had experienced due to the floods and wanted to do something to help lift people’s spirits.

‘We’re proud to partner with the Salvos to bring some fun and entertainment back to the Northern Rivers, and we can’t wait to see everyone soon.’

Tickets to the event are free, but spaces are limited.

Captain Sutcliffe said the Salvos had been in Lismore for over 130 years.

‘When the floods hit earlier this year, and even a few weeks ago when they hit again, we were there supporting evacuees and first responders,’ he said.

‘We will also be here for the long haul, supporting the community as they rebuild, which means that Christmas this year will be more important than ever.

‘We encourage the community to register for a ticket, as well as reach out to The Salvos this year if you need a hand at Christmas. We are here for you.’

Registrations for tickets will open on Thursday 10th November at 8:30am. To register, visit https://www.trybooking.com/CDYZS
