The Garage, Islington, N1
On Friday the 19th August London’s leading bass promoters Vagabondz are hosting a fund-raiser in aid of the famine in Somalia, working in association with the Merlin charity - “The UK's leading charity specialising in international health, sending medical experts to the front-line of global emergencies”
In light of the recent events across UK and particularly in London, we will also be donating 20% of proceeds from this event towards communities in London worst effected by the riots. Although recent news coverage of the riots has taken the spotlight away from overseas issues, such as Somalia (which has recently had 3 more regions declared as famine zones by the UN) we wanted to provide an opportunity for young urban residents of London to give back to their communities whilst raising money and awareness for the current crisis in East Africa.
THIS IS AN 100% NON PROFIT EVENT WITH ALL PROCEEDS GOING TOWARDS CHARITY.

Merlin has been an essential part of the humanitarian response to some of emergencies in recent history, including the floods in Pakistan, the Haiti earthquake, the 2003 war in Iraq, the Indian Ocean tsunami and Darfur. In total, we have delivered smart, targeted aid to 39 countries and are currently active in 14.
