raised $1700 for groceries  for Geelong’s asylum-seeker and refugee families

Gimme Shelter, The Workers Club, Spinning Half and Diversitat presented Gimme Shelter 1, a grocery fundraiser for Geelong’s asylum-seeker and refugee families. Held in Refugee Week 2017, Gimme Shelter raised $1700 to help vulnerable families with their day-to-day living needs.


It was a wonderful night with a great vibe. The performers were top shelf, the auctions were a frenzy of bidding and everyone wore a smile.


Gimme Shelter says a big thank you to:
