Pirate DJs Attempt A World Record For Charity
PIRATE.COM has teamed up with eott and Last Night The DJ Saved My Life to break the world record for most DJs to play back to back. The event will take place at PIRATE Tottenham on 25th September and raise money for music mental health charity KeyChanges.
Every Donation Makes A Difference
Our fundraising goal is to reach £5,000. Here’s how that money can make a difference:
£200 would fund a 5-week Studio Discovery experience for a young person wanting to re-engage with music
£1,000 would fund six months of mentoring support for a young musician experiencing mental illness
£5,000 would fund one year of weekly music activities for young mental health patients in hospital
To pledge what you can, head to our Just Giving page. 100% of your donation will go directly to KeyChanges.
