This Wednesday, 13th March, Ellipsis and Help The Homeless society are putting on a great gig raising money for refugees in Liverpool. The event starts at 7.30pm at Phase One (Seel Street), tickets are £5 online and £7 on the door. The gig will have performances from local bands featuring Feral Family, Gallia, Tim Gumball with Colour headlining. The money will go towards MerseyAid and Asylum Link, both charities that do amazing work to support refugees.
MerseyAid helps refugees crossing Europe who have been displaced from their homes due to conflict or persecution, and helps them to integrate into their community. ‘MerseyAid is a grass roots group, set out to help those in need without the hinderance of red tape, government policies and procedures. Our aim is to provide aid at the point of need, when it is needed.’
Asylum Link is an organisation dedicated to assisting Asylum Seekers and Refugees in Liverpool and to raising public awareness around refugee issues. Asylum Link provides friendship, help and advice and encourages the participation of asylum seekers and refugees in the service. You can get everything from a cup of tea and a chat, access to well-being programmes and advocacy, and help for the destitute.
It’s set to be a good night showcasing new talent from around Liverpool and all of the profit made goes to an important cause – it’s not one to miss!
