Oxjam Shepherd’s Bush Takeover is aiming to raise £10,000 this October. I've seen some of their work first hand in Africa and Asia and I can assure you they do make a real difference.

“We’re really excited to be playing our part in making Oxjam Shepherd’s Bush Takeover part of a month-long musical celebration right across the country. Even more importantly, this event is all about showing that the best in local music can have a global impact too, so everyone who comes along and buys a ticket can rest assured that as well as having a great time, they’ll be helping to change lives around the world too.”
The highlight of the month-long festival will be the Oxjam Takeovers, a series of city-wide mini-festivals taking place in 33 locations across the UK, from Aberdeen to Bournemouth, at the end of October. During a single weekend, around 3,000 musicians will perform to an audience of more than 35,000, all raising money to help Oxfam fight poverty worldwide.
