The state government, in partnership with the Cessnock and Singleton Councils, will hold a public memorial service next month to honour those who lost their lives in the Hunter Valley bus tragedy. 

10 people were killed in the June 11 crash and another 25 were injured.

The memorial will be held at the Singleton Showground on Saturday the 21st of October, from 11:00am.  

A ticket is not required to attend, and the event will be live streamed on the NSW Government website. 

All Hunter residents are invited to attend the service, which is expected to be an important part of a long healing process. 

The government also announced today, the official fundraiser set up by Rotary to support the families of those killed in the crash was closed yesterday, and raised almost $1.5 million.
