Charity event in aid of the DEC East Africa Appeal at the Brewery Tap

DEC fundraiserWe’ve had an email from Sophie Wainwright, who’s organising a charity event on September 16th at The Brewery Tap, Ipswich, in aid of the East Africa Crisis Appeal. Sophie wrote,

Money being raised will go to the DEC to help those affected by the famine in East Africa. I was interested to read your blog posts on your site about the DEC appeal and more recently about the situation with LGBT Africans, and thought you might be interested in this event.

I’d like to invite yourself and your colleagues/members to the event, which aside from being for a very worthwhile cause promises to be a fantastic evening of fun and enjoyment for everyone. I have attached a copy of the event poster, if you could pass this onto your contacts and members it would be very much appreciated, as it would be great to get as many people there as possible to raise as much as we can for the appeal.

The evening will include live music from local band Highly Strung, a BBQ, an auction hosted by Nick Pandolfi from Town 102, a raffle and stalls. Entry is free but of course donations would be very much appreciated.

Lots of exciting prizes are up for grabs in the auction and raffle: hair and beauty treatments, clothes, a barrel of beer, a photography day, gym membership, football tickets, cinema tickets, meals and lots more! If you know of someone/a business that might like to donate a prize, please do let me know.

The donation page for the event is available here if you are unable to attend but would still like to give. I have used mydonate rather than JustGiving as this site charges less commission on donations.

It would be fantastic to see you there.

Best wishes

Sophie Wainwright
