Belle Robinson, musician, music teacher, student nurse is about to embark on a trip of a lifetime with the help of inspired adventures and the UNHCR charity. Belle will be embarking on a trek to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro as part a a fundraising event for the emergency response program for the UNHCR refugee agency.
“When you go on a trip… or I know when I do… I always think ‘yay awesome, a holiday’, but take for granted the fact that you have a safe home environment, food and shelter waiting for you when you return.’ said nursing student and professional musician, Belle Robinson, “Refugees don’t have this luxury and this is why I feel so strongly about the work of UNHCR Refugee Agency.”
Belle’s Sunday Soiree is a gig at Ryan’s Hotel, Thirroul on Sunday 10th November from 3-8pm featuring The Blue Salt Band + Stephen Goldrick & Friends + Pete Thomas and of course Belle Robinson. All money from the event goes to the Emergency Response program for the UNHCR Refugee Agency.
“We are all human beings. We are all different but then again all the same. Everyone deserves the right to a home, a warm bed, clothes and food. There are millions of child refugees in places like Africa and Syria – people can spend up to 17 years in a refugee camp, in a dangerous, unsanitary, unsafe and horrible environment and its up to us to make a change. I regard myself as such a lucky person. I have so much of everything I want in life and i am only 23! I would just like to give these people a chance to someday feel as happy as what I feel everyday.”
