Happy birthday Choir With No Name

1 04 2011

The Choir With No Name celebrated their third birthday at Feet First in Brick lane on Thursday 31st March.

Founded by Marie Benton, the choir is made up of homeless, ex-homeless and “just about anyone really.”

The event was covered by Michael and Sara, two of the new Daily Gorgon citizen journalists and will appear on that blog tomorrow. Meanwhile I took this quick clip before I had to rush back home and finish my assignments for college.

Pounding the streets on the look out for stories and armed with my Flip, I came across the Guerilla Hug team in Brick Lane. http://www.guerrillahugs.com/

Hugging the world back to health

This dedicated outfit are trying to change the world by hugging it.

Hugging the world

After some journalistic research and three hugs later I decided that this was definitely news and worthy of  sharing with the world.
