In the wake of the EU referendum result and the rising tide of hatred, bigotry and racism a seed of an idea was planted to do something to promote hope, love, respect and solidarity within our local community. After discussion with a number of politically sympathetic local musicians we decided to organise a charity gig. It was subsequently agreed to do this under the banner of We Shall Overcome as a warm up for WSO 2016.
The event will feature Marc Block and Paul Carbuncle amongst others and be held at the White Lion in Beeston on Thursday 1st September. Proceeds are to be split between EM Solidarity for Calais refugees and the Jo Cox memorial fund.
Donations to be collected on the door with a suggested contribution of £5 waged / £2.50 non-waged - but please don't let money be a barrier to coming along and just showing solidarity.
