People Transformation Party (Petra) UK wing has organised a Malawi night gig and braii to fundraise for the party coffers at Nottingham ‘The Market Place’ African Club in Sneinton .
According to Petra’s UK wing publicist Fides Jim Kachale the event will start on Saturday 6th August at 8:00 pm until the wee hours of Sunday August 7th 2011 at 02:00 hours and promises lots of music fireworks and food.
Kachale told Nyasa Times that among other things there will be Malawi food, braii and music with Malawian and international Disco Jockeys spinning the sound decks.
Said Kachale: “This is a must attend function for Malawians, Africans and other nationalities living in and around Nottingham city and its surrounding areas for they will be lots of fun. It is typically a Malawian night so people from all walks of life are invited to come and witness the Malawian way of life at the height of celebrating cultural values, food and music.”
He said cover charge is a meagre £3 British Sterling Pound per head (about K9, 000) for those coming gaining entry before 11:00 pm and thereafter it will be £5 about (about K1, 500) per person.
“Apart from fundraising the event aims at selling Malawi to other nationalities so those in attendance will have Malawian an opportunity to sample Malawian food, dance to Malawian music and above all else feel the ‘warmth’ of the Malawian people.
Petra UK Treasure General Thoko Jumbe-Patterson said in a separate interview that Petra UK chapter is fundraising money for the party for the national forthcoming party activities which among other things include a national convention.
She said Petra UK wing will hold a series fundraising activities to raise a substantial amount to be contributed the national coffers adding that the Party in Malawi will hold a fundraising event at Capital Hotel next month.
“We urge people to come and support for this cause as we want to help Malawi to change for a better place and together we can change Malawi,” said Jumbe-Patterson.
According to Kachale, the party will also hold family entertainment activities in the near future in order to accommodate children and others who would not make it to the Malawi night.
