NORTHERN suburbs band Sweet Melodies will host its ninth annual Navrang cultural festival this October in Joondalup.

The celebration of the Hindu Navratri Festival will take place at HBF Arena over four nights on October 4, 5, 11 and 12 from 7.30pm to 11.30pm.

Sweet Melodies donated appliances to the Leukaemia Foundation.

Proceeds from last year’s event led to organisers donating six defibrillators to the Heart Foundation, which were installed in outback locations, and helped the Leukaemia Foundation furnish five respite rooms in Innaloo with appliances.

Since the formation of Navrang in 2011, organisers have donated equipment to various charities to the total value of $99,495.61.

This year they plan to donate equipment to WA Epilepsy and the Arthritis and Osteoporosis Foundation.

Tickets for the 2019 events cost $10 with children under 10 free.
