It’s almost one year since the tragic and appalling death of African American George Floyd at the hands of a white Police officer.
Whist a lot has been done to implement change there still remains a lot to do and a year on, it kind of feels like the initial buzz that was sparked has fizzled out. We want to help keep it going and what better way is there than by performing music.
On 9th April we will be hosting a live virtual stream event right here from the office. Tune in and please help support such a great cause.The fundraiser will be for 2 amazing charities that really resonate with us and have made such a big impact in driving change.
