PALMYRA coffee shop Oushk is among the businesses and community groups holding fundraisers to help people affected by the eastern states bushfires.
The Carrington Street-based business has teamed up with the Honest Goods Company for a Fire Relief Block Party at the Mostly Sometimes Cafe in South Fremantle this Sunday between 11am and 3pm.
A $30 ($10 for kids) entry fee covers all food, drinks, music and more.
“I had the idea of holding an event at my little coffee shop but I’ve only got a few parking bays at the front, but then I spoke to Rebekah from Honest Goods Company and Ryan from Mostly Sometimes Cafe and he mentioned they’ve got space,” Oushk owner Meray Baramily said.
“We’ll have kombucha, cold-pressed juices, acai bowls and the Fremantle Dockers women’s team have donated a signed jersey.”
All proceeds will go to the Australian Red Cross, WIRES Wildlife Rescue and the NSW Rural Fire Service.
There are many other fundraisers happening locally, including a community sundowner run by Dinner Twist at Kadidjiny Park on Friday, January 17.
