THE 2014 Goaty Hill Wines' annual Friends in the Vines jazz concert has again delivered for Bravehearts.

Bravehearts is a national organisation  which has the aim of preventing the sexual assault of children.

In the presence of the charity's mascot Ditto the Lion, a cheque for $1913.40, raised from the Easter Saturday concert, was handed  to Bravehearts' education co-ordinator Aaron Moir.

About 1000 people attended this year's concert.

The funds will go towards the organisation's education program for children aged three to eight, which is called Ditto's Keep Safe Adventure, which is run in Tasmanian primary schools.

``At this point we don't get any government funding so every little bit obviously helps,'' Mr Moir said.

``This is the second year that Goaty Hill have run the concert for Bravehearts and we're so appreciative for Goaty Hill's help.

``Statistically one in five children will be sexually assaulted before their 18th birthday, which is 59,000 children per year, so that is why our education programs are vital for in our schools to educate and protect those children as much as we can.''

Goaty Hill Wines co-owner Markus Maislinger said the winery was proud to be able support and help give back to the charity.
