In August 2018 freelance journalist Eugene Costello suffered a massive heart attack, followed by a stroke. Doctors all but gave up hope, but after nearly a month in hospital he was sent home to convalesce. Instead, he immediately hatched plans for a madcap fundraising drive to return the help he received from NUJ Extra and elsewhere.
He would drive from Britain to Mali in Africa with a man he had never met before. Predictably all did not go according to plan. He did, however, collect scores of pictures, tales and experience that he is keen to share. Come and hear the best from his own lips, toast his recovery and help NUJ Extra lend a hand to a few more of our trade when they face seemingly insurmountable challenges.
Food and drink will be available at the venue.
£7 Proceeds will go to NUJ Extra
