Ballet in Berwick raising funds for MSF, tomorrow, Friday 19th May 4.30-6pm at The Maltings, Berwick upon Tweed!

I am not allowed to reveal my sources because boys don’t do ballet, (of course!), but it has come to our attention that The Jane Keenan School of Ballet is doing this brilliant charitable event tomorrow: https://www.facebook.com/janekeenanballet/posts/10154898463509191

But I can confess an interest in MSF, Médecins Sans Frontieres, whose work across the world is well known and, sadly, needed more badly than ever. Two years ago, we raised nearly £6000 through donating a percentage of sales from the exhibition ‘With New Won Eyes’ along with a blind auction of fantastic artworks by younger artists attending local childcare along with the boys who don’t do ballet. https://olivialomenechgill.wordpress.com/2014/11/13/the-cabinet-of-curiosities-art-for-auction/  for MSF’s work in Syria.

Those artworks are now gone, but tomorrows event is not (even if it is short notice on my part!), so if anyone wants to come along to see another form of talent, or support the event and MSF remotely, the above link has all the info, including a link for donating.

Thank you! (And any similarities between the above drawings and what appears on stage tomorrow is entirely coincidental!).

Where Am I?
