Last year I threw a mini music festival in my back garden in support of my Indian charity ‘Xanders Children’s Fund’ which turned out to be very successful, and so I’m mooting the idea again this year. Our school Kiran Niketan offers education to 250 disadvantaged children from immigrant families who move to Goa from other Indian states to find work. Some of the work we’ve done includes redecorating the buildings, providing class photographs and sending over four UK teachers for a voluntary spell. Currently we are striving to build a wall around the playground after which we are erecting a play garden with swings, slide and roundabout. Our main aim, it would be fair to say, is to enrich the quality of life for disadvantaged children because they too have the same dreams and aspirations as those more fortunate.

Our previous festival saw about six acts performing, all of whom gave their time and amazing skills freely. If it appears viable to repeat the gig I’ll keep folks posted here on my website and as always upload photos for people to see. I think I now have a handle on video production/uploading so I may be able to include a wider audience ‘virtually’. We’ll see – watch this space.
