Charity gig in Southampton raises £400 for Afghan refugee camp

Daily Echo: The Joiners The Joiners

A GIG held at a Southampton music venue to raise money for a refugee camp that was devastated by a fire in Afghanistan has raised hundreds of pounds.

Southampton-born Guy Smallman organised the gig, held at the Joiners Arms, to raise money for the Chamne Babrak camp in Kabul, which was ravaged by a fire that has left dozens of children without shelter.

The emergency gig saw more than 50 people support the cause, and it raised more than £400, which will be sent to help those affected by the fire.

Guy said: “Words cannot describe how grateful I am to everyone in Southampton who pulled the benefit event together in less than five days raising over £400. The money will go a long way.”
