BIG THANKS

2 10 2018

BIG thanks to everyone who came on Saturday to the Friary , it was a great night, very busy, just over 180 folks in the room I think including the band & bar staff.  We raised £1,241 ( including the donation of £100 from A & J Stephen Builders) for the Azul Wasi project in Peru ( after outgoings which are just under £1120 to put the event on).  This is a FANTASTIC amount to help towards the new shower and toilet block at Azul Wasi.

So big thanks to everyone who brought along friends/ family and to those who kindly donated all the raffle prizes too. Also thanks to all those who helped on the night and before the event with posters etc.

He has a double masters in Private International Law and is currently the Manager and sole author of the Website Thinknaturallivesimple.com.  To peak your interest a few words from Joachim – For the past years,  I have effectively divided my carbon footprint by 10! I try to live what we could call a sustainable lifestyle. Being part of the Zero Waste movement, I have only produced 25 grams of non-recyclable waste over the last 6 months, and gone 99% organic,  saving money and time in the process. I created a website to disseminate information that may help people go quicker and profit from my own experience. In addition, I’m living off my passion: music! and all this while living a normal life! So see you Tuesday 13th at my presentation!
