Leicester Performers Raise £1,200 at ‘Gift of the Gab’ event to support Mental Health Charity.

'Gift of the Gab' event supports Leicestershire-based mental health charity, Lamp

The event took place in January at The Y Theatre.

Leicester musicians and spoken word performers came together to raise £1,200 for Leicestershire-based mental health charity, Lamp.

‘Gift of the Gab’ was organised by Leicester musician Kiz and supported by creative agency, Rock Kitchen Harris (RKH). This fundraising event focused on how people can speak up about their mental health, and help others to do the same.

Guests at the event enjoyed live spoken word performances, a panel discussion, hot food and drink from Leicester’s Caribbean Xpress, and a Gift of the Gab t-shirt.

Organiser, Kiz, also known as Kieran Gohil said: “Mental health issues aren’t something that should be taken lightly. In some form we’ve all experienced it and we all need to be reminded that when it comes to facing this hurdle, you’re not alone and that there are people around you to speak to and get advice from.

“We’re delighted that the event was a success and that we managed to raise funds for Lamp and also increase awareness of the charity’s services.”

A very successful event to raise much needed funds for the Leicestershire-based mental health charity at the start of the year.

A second Gift of the Gab event is being planned for later this year.
