So Friday 28th April saw us gathering an eclectic mix of people and talent to raise money for BRT-UK, a charity that runs education and skills programme in one of the poorest countries in the world, Bangladesh. We had spoken word, story-telling, live keyboard and guitar performance to haiku and more.
Charitable funds raised: £150 in cash with further pledges from others to donate online (use Hope n Mic as reference). This can pay for three sewing machines which BRT will train people to use for trade and the initial cohort of people in turn will teach others, thereby causing a ripple effect of change. What an amazing difference from a small action!
Total attendees: 30 wonderful souls
