CoreCic Raise the Volume – FundRaiser July 2016

On Thursday, 28 July we held Raise the Volume a secret charity gig at the Round Chapel. I say we I mean Duncan and Danny the founders of CoreCic (where I am a Trustee). The event was superbly hosted by Dana Alexander (nominated for “Best Comic” and “Best International Act” from Chortle and Black Comedy Awards).

The line-up included electro-swing ska band Molatov Jukebox and Lisa Hannigan , fronted by lead singer Natalia Tena. Food was provided by Papi’s Pickles, an award-winning social enterprise that I met at Nesta New Radicals earlier this month. They work with unemployed women from India and Sri Lanka. Local Hackney bar, The Bonneville Tavern, donated their time making the most incredible tasty signature cocktails.

CoreCIC is a charitable organisation set up to provide reduced cost and free osteopathic treatment to those who normally wouldn’t be able to afford it. As well as helping to alleviate chronic pain, a principle aim of the clinic is to research the best and most effective non-pharmaceutical treatments for persistent pain and eventually help determine NHS protocols for various conditions. The charity will also be looking at the use of preventative treatment in vulnerable patient groups such as the elderly to hopefully reduce the personal burden and fiscal costs of living with chronic pain. Alarmingly women suffer from chronic pain three times as much as men yet little medical research is directed towards this and so this evening heard from incredible women who have suffered through pain.

This site uses biscuits or are they cookies ? explain...

Hello. This site is built in some great software called Wordpress. Out of the box Wordpress uses cookies. These cookies let Kavita figure if it is worth writing some more, as the cookies are used to build the stats page. Cookies also lets you leave messages. If you wish. Not only that cookies make some of the social sharing features work. Gosh it would be super lovely if you used them. There isn't a way to turn off cookies, so sadly you will have to either lump em or leave. Or call Kavita up and get her to read the website to you. Then you can share some afternoon tea, cakes and more importantly, some biscuits. We are telling you so that under EU laws you are all informed. We probably didn't need to tell you as we don't make money on the website. Well you could buy Kavita's book or hire her based on this website and then yes it will be followed up with a request for money, but there isn't adverts or secret nasty click baits hidden in the pages to make us filthy rich or even cover the cost of the server. Anyway we hope this message made you smile. Just a little. You can contact Kavita directly or follow her on twitter.
