At Off Piste Bar

The images coming out of Australia right now are heartbreaking, shocking, and the biggest reminder yet that the climate crisis is just that – a crisis.
In the Aussie spirit of doing the right thing and having a good time doing it, a group of Australians who live in London are clubbing together to host the ultimate fundraiser on 25 January.
To ring in Australia Day weekend, as well as raise money for their country that so needs it right now – the group has organised a whole host of festivities.
From raffle prizes to a charity auction, which includes prizes such as a private cocktail experience for you and 20 of your friends on London in the Sky, Personal Training sessions, gym memberships, dinners for two, brewery tour tickets, concert tickets and rugby tickets, a lot is on offer. And all in the name of helping those in need.
Sam Hunter, one of the organisers, said: The plan is to raise £10,000 and donate every penny to the Australian Red Cross to send home to help with the relief and rebuild efforts in the hardest-hit communities so please, come with full wallets and empty your spare change jar.
"We'll have Aussie hits playing all day, there'll be pizzas and nibbles on offer as well as a raffle and auction to really get you in the giving spirit. Wear your green and gold and bring your Aussie flags! It's an open invite so please invite your mates, their mates, your Tinder/Hinge/Grindr dates and everyone else you know to join us for a parochial Australian AND MEANINGFUL day."
If you can't make it, there's a JustGiving page open to any and every donation, which can be found here.
Tickets are £10 and can be purchased at eventbrite.co.uk
