The Auckland Blues Club will be holding its Christmas Party on the 9th December at The Riverhead and in an attempt to help ease a little bit of the Christmas blues the club will calling for donations from its patrons for the Auckland City Mission’s Christmas Appeal.

The Mission has a history of serving people who have been marginalised through poverty, ill health addiction and/or trauma.

Auckland City Mission relies on the support and generosity of the public to provide emergency assistance and social services to those most marginalised in our community. The Mission is one of the few organisations that can make good use of whatever you have to give, whether it's time, money, food or household items, Auckland City Mission will ensure that your contribution is put to good use to help vulnerable Aucklanders.

Over the Christmas period donations the Auckland City Mission needs most are monetary, non-perishable food items and new toys for Christmas presents.

Sean McCarthy, the Auckland Blues Club’s president, says that “blues musicians are typically stereotyped as being down on their luck but thankfully that’s generally not the case in Auckland, and our club really wanted to help out those families less fortunate than ours at this time of year.”

There will be donation bins (both coin and food) provided, so please support to the Auckland City Mission’s Christmas appeal by bringing along non perishable food items, new toys for Christmas presents or via a monetary donation.

The Riverhead is located at on the corner of York and Queen Streets in Riverhead. A host of bands will be playing for your entertainment, including Black Dog, Dean 'Honey Boy' Morris, The William Brown Band, Stingray, King Snake, Matt Max and The Flaming Mudcats. The party kicks things off at 2pm and plays through to 5pm.

This year will also see the continuation of the blues club awards.

If you join the club or renew your membership at the party, the Auckland Blues Club will donate $10 of your fee to the Auckland City Mission Christmas Appeal.
