Concert to Calais – a real sense of togetherness

Last night’s gig at Dublin Castle in Camden was the first of a 4 date run of concerts to spread awareness and gather supplies for refugees facing a very uncertain future. I believe it’s important to remember that if we care about humanity we should feel able to use our voices and actions to do something to help others in need.

Concert to Calais was set up by Tom Steven. He had the idea of bringing people together through music to help support and ease a little bit of the suffering of refugees currently stuck in Calais, who have made horrendous and dangerous journeys and are now stuck, far from their own countries and with nowhere to call home. So instead of paying to come to the gigs, you bring something that these people need.

It doesn’t matter how small a difference you make, it’s the fact that  you are standing up and making it, and owning your voice .

There was a real sense of togetherness in the Dublin Castle last night, and a wonderful turnout, a green room stacked with donations for refugees, and a room full of giving souls all contributing and speaking out about what is happening in this world.

I’m proud to be a part of this and I hope the week goes on as it’s started

Still to come
