Calais aid and Solidarity Fundraiser - 21/10/15
INFINITY FOODS KITCHEN AND THE HUMMINGBIRD PROJECT PRESENT: CALAIS AID AND SOLIDARITY FUNDRAISER
The Hummingbird Project was initially set up by Elaine Ortiz to reach out to those currently in camps in Calais. It very quickly gathered momentum and today receives a huge amount of support through donations and helping hands. Regular trips across the channel are made, bringing supplies to where they are needed with the personnel to serve food, provide medical care and build shelters. Infinity are delighted to be hosting a fundraising event to support their work, which feeds, houses and cares for families and individuals in need of help.
The event will include a raffle, through which lucky attendees can win prizes sourced from kind-spirited North Laine businesses, and performances as detailed below. Elaine will be in attendance to chat informally about Hummingbird and the increased importance of the project as we approach winter.
And there will be CAKES baked with love in the Inifnity kitchen, plus more from other splendid individuals.

~ PERFORMANCES FROM ~
:: KING PORTER STOMP featuring DAVID STEADMAN of the STAXX BROTHERS
“With massive horns, heavy bass and deeply socially aware lyrics, the 8 piece from Brighton have developed a unique breed of accessible ska, jazz and hip hop which feels as much at home busked on street corners as it is played out on major festival stages.”
:: RIVER JUMPERS
“River Jumpers are a 5-piece melodic punk rock band based in Brighton (UK) and write bangers about life, love, politics and getting by.”
:: AUTONOMOUS CIRCUS COLLECTIVE
“The Autonomous Circus Collective is a collaboration of artists, performers and craftsmen united as a workers cooperative circus.”
:: INVOKALl MC
“The Vandal Of Fame. The Magik Word. Broken Author. Verbalist Journalist. Using spoken word to tell tales of concrete culture. Adapting to poetry & hip hop alike, ignoring the exclusiveness of either. Playing with rhythmic syllable placement & rhyme to construct original wordsmithery.”
