Sound of Silence Chairty Event

I cant wait to get involved with a new charity on October 29th, at Suffolk New College, Apparition Martketing and Design are helping to support a brand new event named 'Sound of Silence.'

I was asked by Lina Hogg, (of Picasso HR and Suffolk Business Women) who is heading the event to get involved on a pro-bono basis and given the cause I was happy to do so. 

We are inviting a number of businesses to hold stalls during the day as well as a number of performers including my younger brother J.Ducker who has kindly donated one of his songs "When the night has dawned" to the event to raise money. Check him out at >

Also we have the beautiful Gracie Wright fresh from L.A, performing and selling her E.P during the day. Born a London Lady (now a Suffolk Gal,) Gracie tours all over the world performing, so we are incredibly lucky to have her performing for us. Check her out at >

We also have an art exhibition as well as an African Drumming band.

Lina is working with an organisation called Women for Women International (UK). .

Women for Women International is a shining beacon of hope for those women in war-torn countries that have been victims of brutality and targeted for rape and sexual violence. WfWI helps female survivors of war to rebuild their lives by providing them with skills, knowledge and loans that enable them to support themselves, their families and their community.

We are planning a public screening of a short documentary to gain awareness and raise funds, with support from Suffolk New College, DanceEast and many other wonderful individuals, called THE GREATES SILENCE – RAPE IN CONGO.

Here is a link to a short documentary narrated by Meryl Streep which you might find helpful to understand the work of WfWI
