This summer I had the pleasure of performing at an event to raise money for the Pikpa refugee camp in Lesvos, Greece, which was a great success. Now this Saturday the event is running again at Waterstones in Birmingham and I’m pleased to have been asked to perform again.
Here’s some details about the camp from the event organiser Helen Calcutt
“My wish is to go to my home in Iraq and play with my friends and go to my school when the Isis is finished.” With the balance of home life, comes the balance of dreams. This is now the dream of one child on the refugee camp known as ‘Pikpa’. It’s sad enough, and this is one place, one child. There are people fleeing their homes and seeking refuge all over the world. But if we can help one, we can work towards helping the many.
