21st October: We are so proud to announce that this year we have raised more than £21,000 for our Official Charity Partner, War Child UK.
A huge thank you to everyone who contributed to this grand total. The money will go towards protecting, educating, and standing up for the rights of children caught up in conflict around the world. It will aim to keep them safe, give them an education and equip with skills for the future.
- If you bought one of our official beers 33:45 with Meantime Brewing, £1 from every can has been donated.
- If you entered the raffles for the signed Rega Research decks from Robert Plant and our 2021 Ambassador Noel Gallagher, all entry costs were donated.
- If you bought the Cranberries, The Clash, Miles Davis, Ed Sheeran or the HELP EP from the official RSD 2021 list, £1 from every release sold has been donated.
Richard Clarke Head of War Child Records said: “We are extremely proud to be the charity partner for Record Store Day once again. Music has always been incredibly important to War Child, and it’s been a joy to see the partnership with RSD continuing to grow and grow. Raising over £20k for some of the most vulnerable children in horrendous situations is a brilliant achievement and we’re extremely grateful to the amazing team at RSD and the independent record store community”
War Child UK is the only specialist charity for children affected by conflict. They work to support children through their recovery – keeping them safe, helping them learn and cope with their experiences, as well as equipping them with skills for the future. They also campaign for changes to policies and practices to support children in conflict, working with children and young people themselves to demand their rights.
