As part of a fundraising event happening in locations across the country, people are being invited to Pogo for Kumbuka in Norwich on Friday - and raise money for a children’s home in Tanzania.

The punk charity gig will take place at The Blueberry Music House in Cowgate, with The Marksmen as headliners, to help the Kumbuka Children’s Centre, which supports children who are orphaned, abandoned or at risk of abandonment.

The centre has grown to become a 20-bed orphanage, 60-pupil school and serves more than 500 street children each week.

Organiser Emma Keevil is a prominent fundraiser in the punk scene, and invites everyone show their support.

She said: “I like to try and unite people through music to do good things for people less fortunate than us. It’s going to be an amazing evening, with fire breathers, stilt jugglers and fire walkers as well as the bands.”

Other members of the punk scene in cities including Birmingham and Cambridge are supporting her by also putting on gigs to raise money for Kumbuka - which means remember.

Entry to the gig is by donation, and it starts at about 7pm.
