Open Mic Night Success

16th March 2015

More than 170 of you attended Thamesmead Youth Voice's (TYV) fourth Open Mic Night, raising £450 for Comic Relief.

The crowd was entertained by 21 acts showcasing dancing, singing, music and the spoken word.

The Link's Reception/Operation Worker, Chris Henry said: "It was the best ever Open Mic Night held at The Link. The acts were professional and gave great performances!"

TYV, who call The Link 'home' organised the fundraiser, from choosing the charity to designing the event's posters and flyers, sitting on the audition panel and making fruit punch and serving food on the night.

A photo booth was also offered with TYV member, Sasha, offering her photography skills. Sasha took photos of the audienec who wore fancy dress and made their faces funny for money.

The Link's Centre Manager, Alison Wood said: "TYV delivered a dynamic Open Mic Night where young people not only shared their talent but also their commitment to supporting the needs of others less fortunate through Comic Relief. It was a fantastic success."

The Link's Reception/Operations Worker, Nadia Kassab said: "TYV should be very proud of their achievements tonight, they have done a wonderful job. I am really pleased to have been a part of it."

Comic Relief's Catherine Harrison said: "Thank you so much for letting us attend your fundraising event, we had an absolutley brilliant time. We cannot stop telling everyone how much talent there is in Thamesmead. If you do it again next year, the whole team wants to attend."
