THE Goondiwindi community will rally together at a charity concert on Sunday to help raise funds for local man Jan Jan Charles and the Pink family who were involved in a fatal accident near Boggabilla last Monday.

The free Benefit on the Border will run from 12 to 4pm at the Gundy Water Park with live music from locals and a performance from The Voice grand finalist Ellen Reed.

Donation buckets will be available.

All money raised will go towards the recovery of Jan Jan Charles who was driving a fuel tanker involved in the crash and the Pink family whose children Jack, Destiny and Marina were killed in the accident. 

The Goondwindi Chamber of Commerce are organising the event and executive officer Brooke Saxby said the crash had deeply affected the community.

She said emergency service crews who were called out to the accident would attend the concert.

“What we are attempting to do is nothing short of a miracle, putting a big concert together in one week but everyone has been (supportive),” she said.

“We did a live feed on Monday just showing everybody what we needed. We needed extra toilet paper and soap and during our live feed this young girl came down and gave it to us.

“Who would’ve thought you would get emotional over toilet paper, (the support) was so beautiful.”

On June 18, a day that should be spent celebrating Destiny’s 16th birthday, the Entertainment Extravaganza – Pink Family Charity Concert will also be held at the Village Green, Logan Village from 11am until 3pm and will be a gold coin entry.

The funerals of Jack, Destiny and Marina Pink will be held tomorrow from 11am at Canterbury College in Waterford.
