Nivek Kerley, a supporter of local disability charity Diverse Abilities that last year held his successful Blues festival in aid of Langside School, is again organising an event starring British Blues Award 2014 winner, Laurence Jones. The event will be taking place on Thursday 5 February at Mr Kyps in Poole from 8pm.
The second event organised by Nivek will be again raising money for Langside School, an independent, non-maintained, special day school for disabled children aged two to 19, run by the Dorset charity.
Nivek Kerley, organiser of event Laurence Jones gig, said: “I was actually inspired to put together Blues For Langside last year after seeing Laurence Jones’ hometown concert. I was really pleased that my first event raised over £2,700 for Langside School and purchased sensory musical equipment for the children, and I look forward to working with Laurence to raise money for Langside once again.”
Organiser Nivek, who used to work at Langside School, is looking for sponsors to come forward and help with the event. Sponsors can contact firstname.lastname@example.org if they feel they would like to help with the costs of staging this event or helping put together other live music events in the future.
Tickets for the event are just £5 and all funds raised will be donated to Langside School. To purchase tickets or to find out more visit www.mrkyps.net or call them on 01202 748945.
