RED noses and rockabilly get-ups will be out in force when Stockton RSL hosts a fund-raiser for the Hunter Region SIDS and Kids this weekend.

RSL events co-ordinator Sarah Blackett said six months of planning went in to the Revin Rockabilly family-friendly event, which includes indoor and outdoor activities for young and old.

Highlights for the kids include ponies, jumping castles, face painting and fairy floss. For the adults there will be market stalls, a car show and dancing competitions.

MisKonduct Klothing will also run hair and make-up sessions, host a fashion parade and judge the best-dressed competition.

All funds raised through the rides and the car show on the day will go towards the Hunter region charity SIDS and Kids, which is dedicated to saving the lives of babies and young children during pregnancy, birth, infancy and childhood and supporting bereaved families.

Mrs Blackett is the mother of a 15-month-old child herself, and said the charity was close to to the heart of many Novocastrians.

"People in the community has been so helpful with the fund-raiser," she said.

The event will also be supported by a $1150 Newcastle council Make Your Place project grant, which will be used to hire children's rides for the day.
