War Child’s fundraising platform The Right To Dance has signed up 35 venues across the UK for its ‘Dance for Good’ initiative, in support of the charity.

As part of the initiative, venues including fabric (pictured), Patterns, The Love Inn, Corsica Studios, The Cause, WIRE, Ramsgate Music Hall, Cobalt Studios and The Mill will donate a part of their profits on Saturday, April 29, to the charity, to mark International Dance Day.

As part of the campaign, the charity has collaborated with Everpress to produce a limited-edition T-shirt, which has been designed with an illustration by visual artist Muhammad Fatchurofi. All proceeds from sales of the T-shirt will go towards War Child, and Everpress will donate an extra £1 for each T-shirt sold.
