Original Wiggles line-up raised over $150k with recent bushfire relief shows

The Wiggles have revealed that they raised over $150,000 for WIRES and Australian Red Cross with their recent reunion shows. The authentic lineup of the enduring youngsters’s group carried out two shows at Castle Hill RSL in Sydney throughout January.

Jeff Fatt (the unique Purple Wiggle), Murray Cook (Red), Greg Page (Yellow) and Anthony Field (Blue) organised the live shows to boost funds for the aforementioned charities’ bushfire appeals. The band took to social media final week (July 3) to announce the full sum donated.

“So much has happened since theses shows but we wanted to take a moment to officially say THANK YOU! With your help, over $150,000 was raised for WIRES & The Red Cross Aus,” the band wrote on Twitter.

“It was wonderful to come together as a community to raise some much needed funds.”

On January 17, in the course of the first of the band’s reunion shows, Yellow Wiggle Greg Page went into cardiac arrest and was rushed to hospital. Page, who had not carried out with the Wiggles since 2016, has a historical past of well being issues.

Current wiggles, Emma and Simon, crammed in for Page on the second charity live performance.
Greg Page was discharged from hospital on January 22.

“We are happy to let you know that he has been discharged from hospital today and will now begin a journey of rest and recovery at home,” the band wrote on social media on the time.

In June, the present Wiggles lineup introduced a sequence of drive-in shows at Sydney’s Raging Waters. The beloved youngsters’s act will carry out six shows on the water park throughout July.
