Australia — A comedy show in Melbourne thisweek has raised $26,000 for the Gippsland Emergency Relief Fund.

Former Denison resident Wil Anderson performed at the show at the NationalTheatre in St Kilda on Wednesday Night.

The relief fund has now raised about $170,000 for bushfire victims.

Fund secretary Andy Tegart says grants are available for Gippsland familieswho have lost assets in the fires.

“We’ve issued to about 85 families now, there’s some over 290 propertiesimpacted, so we’re still short of the mark in that respect,” he said.
