All Night Passion, Aberdeen DJ and promoter, hosted a fundraising live DJ stream on Saturday April 18 in aid of Aberdeen charity, Community Food Initiatives North East (CFINE).
The extended 4-hour special took the listeners on a journey through the 90’s, playing songs from different genres, including house, techno, Eurodance and party jams.
All Night Passion has supported CFINE several times in the past six years by organising fundraising club nights and food collections for the charity.
The live stream on Saturday raised vital funds for CFINE, who are maintaining a contact-free emergency food delivery service during the coronavirus outbreak for those self-isolated individuals and families who are food insecure.
Lisa Duthie, CFINE Chief Executive, said: “We are grateful for the continued support of All Night Passion and those individuals who contributed in the past or on Saturday.
“The coronavirus outbreak fundamentally altered our lives, and CFINE is no exception. The global pandemic affected our stocks, resulting in severe shortage of much needed items. The funds raised on Saturday will contribute towards purchasing essential food and non-food goods, which will be delivered to people facing difficulty.
“We have experienced a significant increase in the demand for CFINE’s support services. The uptake of emergency food parcels doubled, compared to what CFINE’s food bank would distribute weekly under normal operating conditions. We are currently delivering 1,000 emergency food aid weekly with the help of our volunteers and partners”.
Mark Paterson, All Night Passion Co-Founder, said:
“Since the lockdown, we have been exploring different ways to continue our parties. Our weekly live streams have been a great way to bring people together.
“These uncertain times have also made us think more about the increasing number of people relying on food banks. Our loyal community have been extremely generous at previous fundraiser events so hopefully a lot can be raised”.
