Vitality: Refugee Community Kitchen Fundraiser & Roots Inspiration Sound System Showcase: Sunday 18th September 2016 @ Chi Wholefoods

Imagine a vibrant sound-system party which is also a healthy and wholesome environment for all the family. This is the ethos of Vitality, a collaborative project hosted by Chi Wholefoods, powered by Roots Inspiration Soundsystem and bringing together a range of providers from Bristol’s organic, vegan and high vibe food scene. So if you like the idea of shaking your bumper to some subs while sipping on a superfood smoothie come and join the Vitality family!

All proceeds from our first Vitality event will go to Refugee Community Kitchen (registered charity no. 1099682), an organisation doing vital work providing nutritious meals for refugees in the Calais and Dunkirk camps. RCK are currently providing 1,800 meals per day to refugees in need, and are desperate need of more support so that they can sustain this service and grow and expand.

You are welcome to donate more if you can.

Under-8s come in free and for children 8-16yrs please make a minimum donation of £2.

Ticket Instructions: In order to reserve your ticket please click on the donation button below.

When you make your donation via Paypal please include a note telling us how many tickets you would like e.g if you want two adult tickets at the minimum donation level, donate £11 and leave a note saying ‘2 x adult’.
If you wanted to donate more than the minimum, for example £12 for just one adult ticket then all you need to do is tell us in the note section by writing ‘1 x adult’.

We want this event to bring a community of people together and create a special vibe. If you like the idea of the event please show your support by donating and reserving your ticket in advance, there will be tickets available on the door but it would be great to have a firm idea of how many heads to cater for food-wise and how many portaloos to hire etc.

If you don’t want to donate in advance please still RSVP: you can drop us an email to let us know that you intend to come to the event and how many people you will bring. You can email us at, you can RSVP via the facebook event page or you can tweet us @VitalityBristol.


Vitality is volunteer-led and we will be relying on volunteers to help run the event. If you would like to volunteer for the day please get in touch. In return for a shift we can offer you a meal and some refreshment. If you can definitely commit to the date and want to get involved please email or call Zaz on 07974723109.

Any questions please get in touch.

Much love and see you all on September 18th 2016 @ Chi Wholefoods 🙂
