I am so proud to be a part of Sod This! For a Laugh, the campaign benefitting homeless charities across the UK, founded by Susannah Tresilian.
Sod This! was founded in honour of Susannah's friend Paddy, who died of exposure on New Year's Eve, 2016. You can read more about their friendship, and how his death galvanised her into action on the Guardian. To date, two events in London and Manchester have raised £6500 for local charities.
As part of the campaign, I auctioned a living room gig on eBay, which was bought by the lovely people at Siren Music in Soho. The gig took place on a sweltering June day in their office. I couldn't have asked for more welcoming hosts, a better atmosphere, or more pizza. 100% of the proceeds went to Streetlink.
The next Sod This! living room gig will take place in August at a private residence in Hackney, with the money going to Manchester's Booth Centre and Coffee 4 Craig.
Please keep your eyes peeled next summer for opportunities to purchase one of these shows! More information on Sod This! For a Laugh can be found here.
