Gentlemen of the Road will remain committed to supporting urgent needs. In the past this pool of funding has supported tornado relief, flooding and other important calls to action in the places where we have played.
Australia is a country close to our hearts - one we have visited and played in many times and the home to friends, colleagues and collaborators. To help combat the devastating effects of the bushfires we have made a Gentlemen of the Road Fund donation to the Australian Red Cross in hopes of supporting their efforts in saving lives, wildlife and land from this disaster. There are many other great organisations helping those in need and so we hope you will join us and support the Red Cross or any relief group that you are inspired by.
Two years after the Grenfell Tower disaster, the Gentlemen Of The Road Fund supported @GrenfellUnited, the survivors and bereaved families in sending a powerful message to the government to demand change, by including projection mappings of calls to actions on high rise tower blocks safe across the UK, and across the Parliament building. To learn more, visit Grenfell United - grenfellunited.org.uk.
The Grenfell Foundation was set up at the request of some survivors and bereaved families of the Grenfell Tower fire. They provide independent support to the former residents of Grenfell Tower, their families, dependents, and the local community. In the weeks and months after the Grenfell fire, people across the country showed incredible generosity to everyone affected and that continues to this day, and we joined in to help - grenfellfoundation.org.uk.
In Malawi, the attacks and killings of people with albinism has increased in the last few months. Our dear friend and artist Lazarus has been sharing his message, story and music with the world and with that, it has made him a target. We are proud to support the campaign to raise money for building a safe house for Lazarus and his family. To learn more about this exceptional human, you can read more here - lazarus-malawi.com.
YOU did it! We finally bought a safe house for Lazarus and his family!
It’s a 3 bedroom house, one living room, one dining room, 2 bathrooms and a fully fitted kitchen. It’s even got a small out house that could eventually be a little studio for Lazarus. Or a massive chicken coop! The whole compound has a big parameter wall with barbed wire on top. We’ll be installing flood lights and they’re getting a couple of guard dogs. No one is getting to them here!
