Children’s charity The Flying Seagull Project has partnered with online news provider The Canary to stream its Gig For Child Refugees live on Facebook and Twitter tonight.
Visitors to Facebook.com/TheCanarySays or Twitter.com/TheCanarySays between 19.15 and 22.30 GMT on Friday 2nd December 2016 will be treated to performances by Charlotte Church, Carl Barât of The Libertines, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Ed Harcourt, The Magic Numbers, Tom McRae, Kathryn Williams, Lock, Dirty Pretty Strings, Simon Munnery and Colin Sell, with further special guests to be announced.
The Flying Seagull Project brings happiness to children who are underprivileged, marginalised or suffering by running art workshops, music lessons and circus shows in hospitals, orphanages, deaf/blind schools and refugee camps.
The charity’s founder, Ash Perrin, said: “We only came up with the idea for this gig a few weeks ago and it is getting bigger every day. Thanks to the generosity of live filming experts BeatCast, this fantastic link-up with The Canary, and the wonder of Facebook and Twitter, we are now bringing it to a much wider audience, including kids out in the refugee camps. Get involved using the hashtag #HappinessMatters.”
Kerry-Anne Mendoza, Editor-in-chief of The Canary, said: “The Flying Seagull Project is a small charity that is making a huge impact. We are proud to support their work, offering children in desperate situations a chance to feel real joy. This star-studded benefit concert promises to be a truly amazing event – both live and online.”
