Story

Everyone should have a life free from abuse. 

Refuge supports around 6,000 women & children on any given day, experiencing domestic and sexual violence, female genital mutilation, forced marriage, stalking, trafficking, prostitution & so-called ‘honour’ based violence.

I want to raise some cash to help support this work by playing records for 12 hours online on the last day of my 30's. This is the 40th birthday party I couldn't have. I'm really lucky as that's pretty much all I have to complain about due to lockdown. I will be broadcasting on mixcloud live from 11am - 11pm on Saturday August 8 2020. Tune in and join in. https://www.mixcloud.com/skint-richie/

This event is based on Scribble, a club night I ran many years ago in Dundee. We used to wrap the club in paper and set drawing challenges for punters which were then projected by VJs throughout the night. It was a LOT of fun. For this event I've asked a few artist friends to come up with different doodle challenges throughout the day. People at home can take part by posting a picture or video of their drawing on twitter or instagram with #scribblemarathon and I will broadcast it across the live stream. I have a couple of prizes for my favourites. I'll also post up videos of people dancing about their house if you send them. 

I'm going to be playing mostly vinyl and fining myself 20p for every duff mix. I'll take requests for ££s to the charities. The hours will be have different musical genres so feel free to tune in and out through out the day. I've posted a rough genre list on instagram #scribblemarathon. 

I'll also be using this event to raise money for the Glioma Cellular Genetics Resource that is being created through Edinburgh University's MRC Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine. 

Please consider making a donation to them too.My childhood friend Gordon has an inoperable brain tumour and has written a graphic novel about his life with his tumour. He's also going to be featured in a documentary film about his life. He's an interesting guy. You can find him on instagram and twitter @flashvsming 

 By kindly sponsoring me today you are helping to save and change the lives of thousands of women and children escaping domestic violence.Thank you.
