Missed out on tickets to From Brissy, With Love? You can still join the fun(draising) – and win some incredible prizes!

In case you missed it, last week we announced that we were joining forces with the team behind iconic Newstead live-music institution The Triffid to support From Brissy, With Love – A Fire Relief Benefit. While the concert component of the event sold out in record time, there are plenty of reasons to come along in the early afternoon. There's live music, mouthwatering bites and more, plus we've assembled a collection of seriously phenomenal prizes for the event's charity raffle – we're talking the kind of haul that'll have you digging deep for a good cause. more
