Well, having counted up both Moulin Rage III‘s ticket sales and the generously-contributed-to donations tin that Survivors’ Network brought along, the results are in – £189 is going straight to help them in their valuable work! We took £279 in total, meaning £90 went on fees/expenses.
I’ll admit I was initially a little dismayed at the comparatively low final figure: but although these events are fundraisers, they have never just been about the money. The event was an joyful space with powerful performances and a true sense of community. The representatives from Survivors’ Network were able to make new contacts, publicise their search for new volunteers, and deliver a moving and inspiring speech about their mission and history. Even if we didn’t hit the high monetary total of some previous events, I’m still calling this event a resounding success.
