GOOD HEART: Bernie Richards will host Congo Bongo as part of the national Garage Sale Trail on Saturday, October 22, with all proceeds from her sale going towards helping refugees.

Ms Richards will host Congo Bongo –featuring the African rhythms of the energetic drumming groupDjembe Fort.Other local musicians, including folk band Sacred Cow, will also perform.

CongoBongoaligns with one of the most pressing topics on the currentpolitical and socialagenda –the refugee crisis.

Ms Richards, who onceworked for the Department of Immigration, said she had met asylum seekers andlistened to their stories.

She has friends in Syria who have been waiting 20 years to be rescued from their horrific conditions, andbelieves that Australia is not doing enough to help refugees.

The Garage Sale Trail is a day of nationwide garage sales, the heart of which is community, sustainability and well-being.

This year it is estimated that there will 15,000 garage sales, and the Congo Bongois one of almost 25 per cent that will raise money for a charity or cause.

Ms Richards’ garage sale was a hit last year when sheinvited customers to whale watch from her balcony.

She hopes to attract even more people to Congo this year, to experience abeautiful part of the coast,go bargain hunting and support the refugee cause.
