Last Tuesday I had the privilege of attending an event at Compton Acres, hosted by AIM Community Bournemouth, which included a musical performance from my good friend David Ashley.
The atmosphere was beautifully chilled out, with the always welcomed opportunity of sharing a relaxed drink with great company. Before the entertainment added to this calm aura, a couple of inspiring fellows shared with us their cause.
Tim Evans and Alastair Jones, two lovely gents, had stopped in as part of their mission – 1000km on two wheels (each) in 9 days – and this to raise awareness of the important work carried out by the charities they were representing, Worth Unlimited and Frontier Youth Trust. Pedal for Pounds is a worthy cause, aiming to raise the hopes of young people who have been written off to society – but still have huge potential awaiting release. Head to their Facebook page to find out more, and do consider donating.
Anyway, here is a selection of photos, taken on my superb new compact camera. Check out the Forest:JungleCollective page over at mixcloud to hear some of Dave’s stuff, the two podcasts recorded at this event will be uploaded there in the coming weeks.
