THE Fraser Coast Chronicle has thrown its support behind a benefit concert planned for Maryborough's Brolga Theatre on Sunday.

Shelter from the Storm is being held to raise funds for flood and tornado victims.

The Chronicle's general manager Darren Bosley announced on Thursday the newspaper would join the fundraising efforts.

He said a number of photos of the 2013 floods would be on display for people to purchase with all profits put towards those the benefit concert generated.

Hervey Bay Neighbourhood Centre customer service manager Neil Smith urged people to get behind the event to show their support for people impacted by the latest diaster.

"It's happened so quick because of the need to use the Brolga and also while it's still fresh in people's memories," Mr Smith said.

He said all money raised from the event would be kept in the region to be distributed directly to those who need it most, with the assistance of local charities.

Mr Smith said people from Hervey Bay were encouraged to attend and said those who bought their tickets from the Hervey Bay Boat Club were able to catch a free bus to the venue.

Fraser Coast Mayor Gerard O'Connell said council was also right behind the benefit event.

He said more than 200 performers would participate in the concert.

Tickets are $20 and can be purchased from the Hervey Bay Community Centre, the Hervey Bay Boat Club, Torquay Post Office and the Brolga Theatre.
