THE ONE MINUTE CHALLENGE- In aid of the UNICEF

Free entry- voluntary donation for audience -There will be poets as special guests (Errol Mc Glashan, Mell Nyoko..) 

...and I will tell stories indeed!

 The One minute speech challenge idea:

Some people raise funds from their friends and family telling them they are going to run a marathon for a charity.

If taking up a challenge is what works, why not jumping on a stage?

I was touched by the pictures the UNICEF sent to me of Syrian children living in camps..

Now, here is how it works: contestants raise a few quid to subscribe (suggested amount £25 / compulsory minimum £12) then register here:

https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/the-one-minute-challenge-tickets-10103851893 for a one minute speech.

Do come along as audience and support the heroes on stage ! 

 cheers

    We have raised £614 altogether that will go to the UNICEF - As I told to the audience, the organization fees are on me so that every single pounds that you gave actually serve helping the children.

    Hello ! How are you ?Are you still up to this meetup?

    I have created a meetup group for that: http://www.meetup.com/Speak-up-for-charity/ However the meetup adviser mislead me into writing only charity topics and I didn't get that many people. However, I have already 10 contestants who have signed up, five helpers on the day and most probably about 25 audience so far..... so I keep battling to fill my 100 seats room, but it will happen ! So this is just a reminder for the single units like you scattered here and there...

    Don't hesitate to contact me for any questions or encouragement you may have :-)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
