The Albany Club hosts a fundraising event from 8pm on Thursday 15 October, in support of those who are helping refugees on the Greek island of Lesbos.
The small island currently receives around 2000 refugees each day from neighbouring Turkey and local services are stretched beyond breaking point. A minimum of 2000 Euros a day is necessary to provide esswentials like food and water. There is an immediate and desperate need to buy clothing and tents and to pay for medical care, toilets and professional services like counselling and resettlement assistance.
Anyone who can make a contribution is urged to attend on the night but all donations will be gratefullY received by the club.
Speakers include Councillor Ed Ruane and there will be a live video link to the coordinator of the relief effort in the Lesbos town of Molyvos. Entertainment comes from local burning soul outfit the Baptists, with supporting DJs.
Tickets are £5 on the door or from the club
