Dancers rock for twins

SATURDAY night saw one of the biggest rock line ups in Leongatha for a fundraising concert to help the Durand family.

The Rock to Recovery concert raised $2785 towards the medical expenses of premature twins Luca and Eli Durand, the children of Ash and Nick Durand of Leongatha.

The twins spent much of their lives in the Royal Children’s Hospital. Both boys are now home in Leongatha, however continue to have ongoing medical treatment at significant cost.

Rock to Recovery was held at Leongatha Memorial Hall. MC’d by comedian Beau Stegmann, the rock line up consisted of some of the best bands in Gippsland: The Meteoriots, Rockenspiele, Half The Sky, Red Sector and Drunken Ninja. Music was also provided by local DJs DOY and Starky.

Funds raised will go directly towards the twins’ ongoing medical costs. A special thank you to all of the bands, DJs, Mr Stegmann, security, bar/door staff and to John Taylor of Gippsland Audio Visual who donated their time on the night.
