I am a Digital Marketing professional based in Manchester City Centre, and a freelance journalist.
This Friday Islington Mill hosts a gig in aid of Oxfam, Oxjam Rocktober.
But what is Oxjam? "Oxjam began in 2006, with the aim of creating a network of music-loving people across the UK, all united by a shared goal - to raise money to fight poverty and suffering around the world. 10 years on we're still going strong, with hundreds of incredible gigs taking place each October. Oxjam is a grassroots festival, with thousands of volunteers celebrating music in their local communities by organising their own gigs in support of Oxfam GB."www.oxfam.org.uk/oxjam/what-is-oxjam)
This Friday, come down, buy a ticket, drink, dance, enjoy and be part of an amazing opportunity to raise money for an amazing charity. Support the work Oxfam and those who generously donated their time and resources.
