First Joyous Act (worth writing about) in 2012 can hopefully be seen by clicking the link below…
One Sunday morning, nursing a mild hangover, myself and 2 friends headed to Battersea Park to offer some support to my old school mate Ben Hammond. Ben is an inspiration to us all. He is one of those rare people that has found the courage to actually do something and make change happen. He has set up a charity Learn Burma and for the past two years he has been reminding us all of our most simple freedoms.
Ben has made fundraising an art form. By asking the question ‘Are you Free to Dance?’ and encouraging us all to shake our stuff while he proves it, he shines a stark light on the plight of Burma. Last year Ben danced the London marathon (yep, you read that correctly) and this year he is taking the question and challenge even further, by Dancing Britain.
So, in Battersea park we did our bit to help Ben film his video promo for 2012. Did we feel silly dancing? Maybe for a second or two. But were we Free to Dance? Absolutely.
Now – I would share the link to the finished product but at the moment I can’t quite find the link for that video – bear with me, coming soon…..
