|Northern Beaches psych-rockers Ocean Alley are thrilled to be teaming up with Cerebral Palsy Alliance (CPA) later this month, raising money for the initiative through ticket sales from both sold-out Sydney shows as well as setting up a platform for friends and fans to donate online. The news comes with the announcement of local supports for all dates of their upcoming regional run, which has sold out six of eight dates and recently expanded with a performance in Byron Bay.|

Cerebral palsy is caused by injury to the developing brain, and is the most common physical disability in childhood. In Australia, one in every 500 babies is diagnosed with cerebral palsy, a lifelong disability that affects movement and muscle control. Ocean Alley will donate $2 per ticket from both Sydney shows, with good mates Coopers Brewery, UNIFIED Music Group, 123 Agency and Wrangler Australia throwing their support behind the initiative – collectively raising over $20,000 for CPA. The band has a longstanding association with Cerebral Palsy Alliance’s Twenty/20 Challenge event, which raises funds for essential equipment for children, and hopes that with the increased awareness over these two shows, public support will take their contribution to even greater heights.
