Bristol Shake - The Italy Earthquake Fundraiser

THE FUNDRAISER GIG TO SUPPORT THE COMMUNITIES AFFECTED BY THE RECENT LARGE EARTHQUAKES IN THE CENTRE OF ITALY.

On the 24th of August an area in central Italy was hit by a 6.0 magnitude earthquake causing the death of 300 people and leaving many more homeless as their homes and villages have been completely destroyed.
Two months later a tremor measuring 5.5 magnitude followed leavng everyone unsure of their safety.
On the morning of the 30th of October a huge 6.6 magnitude earthquake hit creating even more confusion and destruction as well as destroying all the remaining buildings
As a result hundreds of people have been forced to leave their hometowns with no possessions and nowhere to go.
THEY NEED OUR HELP, THIS IS WHERE WE COME IN!!!

We will be holding a fundraising night for the cause with all proceeds going towards the victims of this tragedy.
We are working closely with an italian association “Leonessa per Amatrice” who is raising money to began rebuilding one of the towns that has been devastated by these earthquakes.

The first focus being the building of a new nursery school to give local children hope and security for their future.
The amount of proceeds will be published throught this event and our page.
