PUDDINGS, PIES AND …... PANTS

THE BIG GIVING GIG is an evening of music organised by DERWENT VALLEY ON DEMAND, HOPE FOR BELPER and the LION HOTEL to support local charities.

AND, TO ENTER THE EVENT, BRING ALONG PUDDINGS, PIES AND PANTS.... ACTUALLY CLOTHING OF ALL SORTS.

Organiser James Oldrini said “It is a time of year for giving and a time to help people who are homeless. Belper people are incredibly generous and we hope that will be reflected on the evening.”

To gain admission simply donate tinned food (particularly puddings, pies, mild curries and chilli con carne), UHT milk and toiletries such as shampoo. Or hats, scarves, gloves, fleeces, jackets, single size bedding, blankets & pillowcases … in fact anything you might need when it is cold.

The evening will be filled with local musical talent. Phil Doleman will be featuring tracks from his latest album ’Skin and Bones’. Sue McFarlane, Emzae and Simply Mel complete the bill.
“We are very grateful to the musicians for giving their time. They all agreed to take part without any hesitation,” said James Oldrini.

• At least 78 homeless people died on the streets during the winter 2017 / 18, bringing the number of recorded homeless deaths to more than 300 since 2013, research has shown. Nationally, a former soldier, a quantum physicist and a 31-year-old man mourning the loss of his mother and brother were among those found dead in doorways, crowded shelters and tents pitched in freezing conditions since October last year. The number of recorded deaths of homeless people has more than doubled over the last five years, rising from 32 in 2013 to 77 in 2017. At least 318 homeless people have died since 2013.
