All Girl Band Night For Charity

This event sounds really cool and I’m really annoyed that I can’t go. It’s an all girl band night benefit for the charity Positive Action. More info below (ps. I stole the Press Release below from here).
POSITIVE ACTION present A BENEFIT for U-TURN

Start Time: Saturday, November 21, 2009 at 7:30pm
Location: The Victoria, Mile End

The U-Turn project is a Bethnal Green based charity that is both under exposed and under funded. Its main aim is to help and work with “vulnerable and hard to reach women of all ages who have been trapped in the cycle of prostitution, drug addiction, physical abuse and homelessness from a young age”. U-Turn offers them “an opportunity to self-determine their future in their own communities”. Their main mission is to “support women who have suffered cruelty and abuse and encourage them to make sustainable changes in their lives.” U-Turn helps to try and change these forgotten women’s lives around.
