Fundraiser this week: SOAS Nightmarket

This Wednesday evening, 1 August, the ‘SOAS Nightmarket’ will be raising money for Lambeth Women’s Project. Come along and swap some clothes, listen to music and eat cake!

Doing your dissertation but you just wanna dance? Bored of all your clothes but don’t want to keep buying new ones? About to move house and don’t know what to do with all those old things lying around?

The JCR is set to turn into a night market of clothes trading, cake selling/eating and music/moves to raise money and awareness about the government cuts to public services – this month we’re focusing on key services for women through the Lambeth Women’s Project (www.savelambethwomensproject.com)

Thank you to all those who participated in the Jumbleshare, if you have any more clothes you’d like to donate do drop them in the collection box in the JCR.

At 6pm on Wednesday 1st August in SOAS JCR there will be djs, food and loads of clothes to come and swap/buy/take all for a small entrance fee of £3 OR £1 plus 3 items!

This will be a chance to have a break from work and spruce up your wardrobe without having to tackle oxford street!!

—–Please bring in any old clothes you want to get rid of to the Students Union from now until August 1st…—–

Julia Biel

JULIA BIEL is putting the finishing touches to her new self-penned record – which she has co-produced with Idris Rahman, bandleader/producer with SOOTHSAYERS. With album samplers that nod to Radiohead, PJ Harvey, Portishead and Bjork as much as to Nina Simone and Billie Holiday, the forthcoming album promises to be chock full of melancholic innocence and epic drama, wrapped up in a production style that owes as much to the classic as to the contemporary.

The Rule Of Regina (acoustic)
Envision a chatoyant tale of a minstrel regent and her fellow vagabonds, roaming a netherworldly realm of music. We specialise in commanding the dark forces of polyrhythm, spellbinding demons and dragons with steampunk industrialised drop-2 chords, and wooing both princesses and hardass urban mythical creatures alike with raw soul ballad realism, while melodically shouting for more ale to quaff.

Donate to eviction fund and help save LWP

 — LWP FUNDRAISING TARGET for EVICTION FUND: £1,500

PayPal donations received so far:  £1,577.73 (23 July 2012)

Lambeth Women’s Project is in urgent need of money, resources and pro bono expertise. LWP has remained an important part of women’s communities through the hard work and dedication of its numerous volunteers. It’s this support that keeps LWP going.

LWP has faced many struggles over the years, even decades. This is the fate of many women’s services and projects which rarely get the financial support they deserve – and is even more depressing considering the vital grassroots work that LWP does in working with communities of colour, and across racial and class lines, in one of London’s poorest boroughs.

LWP continues because people care passionately about this project and want to see it not only survive, but thrive.

We’re trying to raise money for LWP to pay for the costs of campaigning against eviction (including legal fees) and to pay for an accountant to submit LWP’s updated accounts to the Charity Register.

We’re asking people to donate whatever they can or get in touch if they can donate something on a more regular basis. Our fundraising target for the eviction fund is £1,500. This is just the beginning of a fundraising campaign, and LWP recognizes the need for longer-term fundraising strategies.

You can donate securely through PayPal or transfer money directly to LWP’s bank account using the following details:

Account Name: Lambeth Young Women’s Project

** Thank you for your solidarity and generous support!  **

N.B. Lambeth Women’s Project is also in urgent need of a solicitor/case worker with regards to the eviction notice. If you can offer any help, please get in touch. lambethwomensproject@gmail.com
