A REDDITCH based charity which helps children and women living in poverty and experiencing domestic abuse is holding a charity Reggae Night on May 18.
Global Harmony, founded in 2006, has organised the event which will be hosted by DJ Action Pack Sound System at the Mettis Aerospace Sports and Social Club on Cherry Tree Walk from 7.30pm until 12pm.
With an entrance fee of £6, there will be a variety of different musicians singing on the night.
This is the third Reggae night Global Harmony has held and last year’s event was attended by more than 300 people and raised up to £1,000 for the charity.
Beth Cudjoe started the charity after visiting Ghana with a friend and after visiting several projects, she decided to support the work they are already doing.
She said: “I wanted to make sure the money raised actually went to the people in need so I personally go to Ghana to ensure the money is spent on what it has been raised for.
“Global Harmony has supported several projects since 2006 and has taken volunteers to work in schools and orphanages.”
Global harmony also hold workshops and offer one-to-one life coaching to people experiencing mental health issues or those in domestic abuse situations or are survivors of abuse.
Many of the people who have attended life coaching have become volunteers with the charity.
Global Harmony also work in partnership with Asasease Records who use music as a way to raise funds.
Together with volunteers they raise money to support different projects in Ghana and have also given financial support to a hospital in Jamaica.
