British Georgia Society Annual Charity Festival hosted by Tamada Restaurant invites Londoners to a day of good food and great wine, affordable art and crafts as well as entertainment for kids and adults.
The British Georgian Society brings together people in Great Britain and Georgia to develop a greater understanding by providing a platform for activities on a wide range of Georgia-related subjects such as art, film, music, culture, archaeology, history, and business. The board and membership consists of Georgian and British members from diverse backgrounds: government, diplomacy, business, civil society, culture, academia, and mass media.
This will be the first specialised facility for kids with terminal illnesses in Georgia. The hospice is currently under construction and will be completed in December 2016. Open Society Georgia Foundation will run the hospice in partnership with Medical Corporation “Evex”. It will provide 24/7 care on the premises along with the daycare and home care services. Even though the project has plenty of friends and donors, our support will be vital as this is a very costly project. 600 000 GEL (200 000 GBP) has already been raised and another 200 000 GEL ( 65,000 GBP) is needed to complete the project.
An abandoned orphanage building in Dzegvi is a home of mentally and physically disabled adults and their children. There are 78 people in the community. They need clothes, shoes , electric wheelchairs and kitchen appliances. We will be gathering for them during the even and Georgian Cargo have offered to ship our parcels free of charge.
We would like to invite you to support a UK charity, which devises and delivers music therapy projects to disadvantaged children around the world. As part of their Georgian project 16 professionals have already received training and 72 children and adults participated in music sessions. Music Therapy International will train more staff and equip classes to run music sessions if we join forces to raise much needed sums for them.
We would like to use this opportunity to raise funds for Georgian Association for Mental Health, GAMH runs different projects, funded by various European organisations. The main is a Rehabilitation center in Tbilisi that provides day-time activities for people with mental health problems.
GAMH is currently trying to buy a sewing machine as this would give them a chance to offer more work to their beneficiaries, we’d need to raise up to GBP 800 to help them.
home-made cakes, freshly baked Khachapuri (traditional Georgian dish of cheese bread) and Mtsvadi (barbecued meat) a variety of vegetarian mezes and… of course wine from Georgia
Face-painting, DIY cupcakes and other entertainment for kids; Music, songs and dances throughout the day; Stalls of arts, crafts and souvenirs from Georgian photographers, artists and designers; Tombola, auction and surprise challenges for those who want to have fun and help to raise much needed funds.
Separate stalls will be raising money for different causes, choose which cause is closer to your heart and support the first Children’s Hospice in Georgia or fund music classes for children with autism.
