Marcus Brigstocke hosts charity event at Hammersmith Apollo
Date Posted: 27/09/12
Comedian Marcus Brigstocke is to host an event this autumn at London's Hammersmith Apollo in support of the charity Street Child Sierra Leone.
A Winter Hamper of Delights in Aid of Street Child Sierra Leone is to feature the best of British comedy and music talent, with the likes of KT Tunstall, Shlomo, Seann Walsh, Phill Jupitus and Ed Byrne confirmed so far.
Music and comedy fans who want to support a good cause should book short breaks to London for Monday, November 19th to attend the event.
Street Child Sierra Leone aims to use the proceeds to help take children off the streets in Sierra Leone and either bring them back to their families or move them into a new, loving environment.
The charity employs locals in the small country in West Africa to set up day care centres that provide food, counselling, clothing and medical care to young children who inhabit the streets, before trying to find them their previous home or a new one.
Families who take on these children are then supported to set up small businesses and keep a steady income to allow the kids to attend school. Reports suggest that 95 per cent of the children in the program who end up in education stay there and keep off the streets.
