The event will raise funds for our Poverty Hurts Appeal, in support of the increasing number of people in Gloucestershire struggling with the continued cost of living crisis.

Many local charities are experiencing 30-50% increases in people turning to them, but as a charity they are struggling to raise enough funding to help their beneficiaries, as well finding funding to pay their own increasing overheads.  As a result, some charities are now having to turn people away and close their doors, as they just can’t cope anymore.

“Charities all over Gloucestershire are coming to us for vital funding to help people who need it urgently. It’s absolutely essential that we raise the funds to help them.  We can’t let them down, we must ensure that people’s basic needs around heating and eating are met in the face of poverty.”  Talitha Nelson, CEO.

Tickets will be available on our website, and will go on sale in January.
