Local singer/songwriter Caroline England invites you to a Paddy’s Night “Fun”draiser, to help raise funds for a local girl who needs our help. Caroline writes:
Despite her disability, often leaving her drained and in chronic pain, Kaliya Franklin (@bendygirl – pictured with Caroline above) is a disability rights activist, Guardian blogger and founder of The Broken of Britain.
Because of the bizarre NHS rules and regulations, Kali, despite desperately needing an electric wheelchair due to Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, to dramatically improve her quality of life, is told she is not eligible.
This link to a Guardian article explains more.
Our community has decided to take matters in to our own hands and raise the money ourselves.
Come to Panache on Market Street on 17th March, 7.30pm start (get there early to avoid disappointment) for live entertainment from myself (Caroline England), raffle, Bollinger Champagne pound coin roll, open mic and loads more.
