It really was an awesome night. Thank you.
I really hope I get to see you again sometime.
Love Nina xxx
Nina booked Andy through a recommendation from another Charity Event he performed at a few years ago (for Cancer Research).
The evening was held in Norwich School where they had hired a marque to hold their black tie event, which included a 3 course meal.
They had a silent auction, a raffle and they also auctioned 4 items on the night to try and raise as much money as possible for "Girl's Speak Out Street Child" Charity. They raised 15K which was a great amount of money! To add to this, the government matched this figure bringing the total raised to £30K.
Here is some information about the chosen Charity.
Street Child is an education charity that supports children in Sierra Leone, Liberia and Nepal to get back into safe family homes and access to education.
From the 18th April – 17th July 2016 all donations to our Girls Speak Out Appeal will be doubled by the UK government.
The Girls Speak Out Appeal aims to raise £1 million to ensure that more than 20,000 children can go to school and stay there.
What’s more, it will offer girls across Sierra Leone the chance to speak out for the first time to help ensure that the issues they face cannot continue to be ignored.
In July we were amazed by Nina Christophi's incredible fundraising - and we'd like to celebrate her this Advent.
Nina organised a Summer Ball event for Street Child, and managed to raise over £15,000 for our #GirlsSpeakOut Appeal - a total which was then doubled by UK Aid.
The Girls Speak Out Appeal was designed to provide education opportunities for vulnerable girls in Sierra Leone, whilst also giving them a platform to speak out for the first time, to ensure that their voices are not ignored. The £30,000 raised in July directly contributed to the achievements of the Appeal, including the enrolment of 5,000 girls into secondary school over the summer, and the creation of sustainable family businesses for another 5,000 girls' families.
Without the hard work of people like Nina, this groundbreaking project could not have been implemented.
Thank you Nina for your remarkable fundraising, and commitment to the Girls Speak Out Appeal. Discover the stories and successes from the appeal here: http://ow.ly/dew330709Od
