Stoke Newington club night tomorrow for Hackney nursery plagued by break-ins
A funk, soul and garage night is planned at Tipsy Bar, Stoke Newington, to raise funds to replace musical equipment stolen from a KIDS Adventure Playground in Big Hill, Upper Clapton during a spate of break-ins.
KIDS Adventure Playground in Big Hill, Upper Clapton was broken into and vandalised several times in 2012.
A £5,000 ride-on mower, two lawnmowers, £95 cash, a camera, video recorder and a state-of-the-art laptop which doubled as a music system, were all stolen, and a visit from Father Christmas was cancelled because there was no money for a party.
Now Julian Danquah, who works at the nursery for youngsters with learning or physical disabilities, wants to raise £1,000 to buy the children a sound system.
He is organising the club night with help from The Big Everything - a group of visual artists, DJs and musicians he founded.

They hope to raise more money through an auction on the night and are asking people to donate.
