Having fun raising funds!

Last weekend we held a fantastic party in London, raising £580 for the Abolicao Trust!

Group members from Abolicao Synergy did all the organising and preparation, which included putting up lots of colourful carnival decorations and a piñata full of goodies, as well as applying beautiful glitter and jewels to faces throughout the night! Highlight of the evening was the chance to win some incredible raffle prizes, kindly donated by London and Oxford capoeiristas, including: a silver ring, a therapeutic body massage, a samba lesson and a one day ‘gardening experience and tuition’!

And of course, no capoeira party would be complete without squeezing in an impromptu roda - filling the room with good vibes and plenty of axe!

A big thanks goes to everyone who helped out, and came and partied with us, especially Anna (Princesa) from Abolicao Synergy, who put lots of time and effort into organising.

Most importantly we raised an incredible £580 to support students at the Hamburg project in South Africa.
So THANK YOU all, and if anyone else has any fundraising ideas, please get in touch on - we would love to hear from you!
