Solstice – The band

The Band

The wonderful band Solstice performed at The Pitz in Milton Keynes on Saturday.  They have reformed after many years of branching out individually as musicians.  I had seen a DVD of them performing at the Cropredy Festival many years ago and thought they were superb.  Last weekend something made me dig it out and play it to a friend – and then of course rave about it.  Hey presto two days later a get an e-mail from Andy telling me all about the re launch and their new CD Spirit.  Synchronicity or what! 

A chance to link a wonderful band full of talented people with Fairtrade t shirts to help promote the band.   Next the design they wanted – a Indian mandala based design – how fitting.  So there we were Fairtrade t shirts in hand, printed, and watching a great band.  The crowd loved them.  Download some tracks on www.solsticewebsite.com and go and listen to them………

Global Poverty Project

We were proud to sponsor Global Poverty Project for the launch at St Paul’s Cathedral to churches across the UK. They had an audience of 800 which we think is a wonderful achievement. Well done!

They were  joined by the Secretary of State for International Development Douglas Alexander, the  Archbishop of York John Setanmu and TV presenter Denise Robertson.

Here they are wearing their Fairtrade T shirts and taking part in the Global Poverty Project “Tug of War”.

Look at their web site to find out more about the work they do http://globalpovertyproject.com/blog/
