Feeling the Effect

Our fundraising journey is off and running!

I’ve had a few things going on the past few weeks but wanted to make sure I posted an update on the inaugural event under the brand The Disco Effect I mentioned before.

Well the good news is it went great!

We had a great evening at the Gusto Lounge in Southampton, featuring yours truly, my trusty co-conspirator Kev Muldoon plus a guest appearance from Soul Rejuvenation‘s Shaun Hopkins.

Genre-wise within the soulful house and nu-disco theme we covered a fair amount of ground, with anything from this summer’s Glitterbox anthems to soul classics and a few vocal club anthems to round things off at the end. We even threw in free pizza, and you can’t say fairer than that.

Most importantly, our honesty box and raffle for those amazing raffle prizes raised a whopping £581.99 for the Countess Mountbatten Hospice in Southampton.

Kev and I are now thinking about what to do next based on what we learned this time around. Ideas and suggestions are always welcome of course 🙏🏻

A massive thank you to everyone that helped, donated prizes and joined in the fun on the night. If you missed it and wish to, you can still donate via JustGiving.

Stay tuned for the next one!
