We were delighted to present a cheque for £1050 to Richmond Mind’s director Val Farmer a couple of weeks ago. The event took place at The Troubadour in Earls Court, London, where our last fundraising gig was hosted. The cheque was handed over in the presence of one of the Club’s directors, Susie Thornhill.
Our designer Patrick Barthès created a wonderful fake cheque for the occasion which we’ve reproduced here, another opportunity to thank everyone involved especially the artists who performed at the fundraiser: BluesClub, Yolanda Charles’ The Deep Mo, Black River Wild, Max Fletcher and last but by no means least, DJ Liam Rogue State Wild.
We’re also grateful to our own team, The Troubadour’s, Richmond Borough Mind’s and Armadillo Central’s, not forgetting all the wonderful people who bought tickets and donated their money, time, energy and skills to make the event such a success. We couldn’t have done it without you!
We’re now working on the next gig so watch this space for more news. We’ll also be posting updates on Facebook and Twitter. To receive news by email please ask to join the mailing list by sending a message to: thefinelineproject *at* gmail.com.
Photographer Patrick Barthes has just resurfaced with some more shots from The Fine Line Project Mind Benefit at The Troubadour.

What a FANTASTIC gig at The Troubadour last night – just sorting through the shots and counting up the proceeds for Mind charity. A definite sell-out success all round! We’ll be posting up a report in the next few days, meantime here’s a shot of BluesClub in full swing.
Check the fantastic write up by journalist and author Stephanie Zia on her blog, Confessions of an Author, about BluesClub and The Troubadour Club.
We’re also using this pre-gig excitement to thank Fine Art Solutions, who usually work on fine art and photographic prints but who’ve very kindly printed up some superb quality posters for our publicity campaign – rock ‘n roll! See them (the posters that is) at The Troubadour and elsewhere from tomorrow.
Yes, yes, we still have a few tickets left for this unmissable evening – get yours now from www.armadillocentral.com.
