MUST DO: charity nights at the Monarch and Colonel Fawcett

Phone Credit For Refugees and Oxjam are putting on two very special soirees in the next week. Do your bit

Phone credit for refugees

This grassroots charity supports asylum seekers and refugees across the world who are separated from their families by war and conflict. “We provide mobile phone credit so that they can get in touch with their loved ones, communicate with support agencies, and stay safe,” says volunteer Sam. “We’re a humanitarian response organisation set up and run by ordinary people in the UK and across the world – volunteers who give their time freely to help refugees feel safer.”

To coincide with Refugee Week they’re hosting a fundraising evening with live blues, folk, jazz, and world music, comedy from local up-and-coming comedians, belly dancing and DJs. There’ll also be a chance to hear refugees’ stories live. Tickets £5, 23rd June, Colonel Fawcett, 1 Randolph Street NW1
