16.09.15 - Refugee Solidarity Fundraiser

This post is slightly off topic but since July I have been a member of London to Calais, a group of volunteers taking aid to the jungle of Calais. Last night we held a fundraiser organised by Izzy Wood, myself and the L2C team. The event was MC'ed by the incredible Imran Yusuf, who brought together the most amazing line-up including Mark Thomas and Paul Sinha.

There was a great vibe on the night and through laughter comics discussed issues of poverty, borders and identity.

All the tickets were sold within 24 hours! With ticket sales and a raffle (donated by comic Stephen K Amos) the total raised on the night was £1,200. The complete total of this money will go to the needy in the camp, as the comics, the venue, the helpers all donated their time for free.
