ON Saturday 9th January 2016 Thames Delta Music hosted a large benefit event at Thameside Theatre to raise money for South East Rape & Incest Crisis Centre (SERICC) and Thurrock Lifestyle Solution (TLS), two charities based in Thurrock.
The goal of the event was to raise awareness of the services available to women and girls who have suffered sexual violence (SERICC) and to increase opportunity for learning disabled people to obtain safe independent living and have a positive community experience (TLS).
The event showcased Thurrock’s wealth of arts and culture including live music, spoken word, art exhibitions and interactive poetry. Thurrock based artists’ live paintings were auctioned off with a large raffle of prizes donated by Intu Lakeside, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Unilever Global Haircare, Proctor & Gable, The Headrooms, Quest Music Services and other local businesses. We are overwhelmed with the ongoing support from the local people and are delighted to donate Â£500 to SERICC & TLS.
The next community music event is Saturday 13th February 2016 at Thameside Theatre 8pm – 11pm. For more info www.thamesdeltamusic.com
