fund-raising rabbit

Back in pre-pandemic days, when we still held our monthly spoken word night Yes We Cant in the Pretty Bricks, we’d put an empty pint glass in front of our Fund-Raising Rabbit (a stuffed toy, if you’re wondering) for folk to throw in any shrapnel they couldn’t be bothered taking home. At the end of the year, we’d add up the total of the change thrown in there, and donate it to a local charity.

Each year since then, PPP has continued to raise money for a designated charity in our region. This is made up of a % of the fees we get for running slams and workshops, along with money which is left over from our online Yes We Cant nights once we’ve paid our feature poets.

This year, thanks to the generosity of audience members at our pay-as-you-feel events, we’ve raised a total of £341.24 for The Well foodbank in Wolverhampton, who do such vitally important work in helping care for the most vulnerable and needy folk in our city. We’ll be sending that their way very soon.

Thank you all for your help in making that possible, you wonderful people. We wish every one of you a happy and healthy festive season, and all the best for 2022. See you on a Zoom screen soon!
