Following on from the incredible success of the JustGiving campaign (£67,167 as I write this), Orange Goblin have announced a gig at The Black Heart in London on January 5th in aid of those who were made suddenly redundant this week.
With support from fellow local crew Steak, the band are asking for a minimum donation of £10 on the door to get in. All proceeds will get shoved directly into the campaign tub which will make its way to the people who lost their jobs.
Note that the venue only holds 120 so if you want to go, get there early! Ben Ward stated:
A few days ago when I heard the news that my good friends at Team Rock were being made redundant with no pay during Christmas week I just felt that I had to do something. That night my girlfriend and I set up the Just Giving page and within 2 days we had raised almost £60,000 and we were blown away by the response and generosity of people all over the world. To help raise even more funds, Orange Goblin will play a very special show at the Black Heart in Camden on January 5th.
This will be a minimum £10 donation to get in and admission will be on a first come, first served basis as the venue only holds 120 people! All proceeds for the night will go to the Just Giving page in hope that we can give something back to the journalists that have supported our band and our scene for many, many years!
