Tickets are €29 with with all proceeds going to Aidlink’s local partner charities in Kenya and Uganda. Tickets are available from here.
The core focus of the work Aidlink funds is based on capacity building within society by empowering women, which begins with education, but also includes irrigation and sanitation. The welfare of children was a huge concern of Mic’s, so it’s fitting that the funds will be used in this way.
