Thanks for taking the time to read and hopefully donate!! 😊

Phred says:

“At the forefront of this initiative is the Grand Appeal, the charity for Bristol Children’s Hospital. Having experienced the remarkable impact of their work firsthand, I am deeply committed to supporting their mission. Lily, my youngest daughter, fell ill just before her 6th birthday, and our family found itself in the unexpected position of needing the services of Bristol Children’s Hospital.

This experience was a rollercoaster of emotions, and during those challenging times, the Grand Appeal provided immeasurable support not only to Lily but also to our entire family. Witnessing their dedication to easing the burden on families and the exceptional care they provide, I am compelled to raise both awareness and funds to ensure their vital work continues.

Additionally, my affiliation with the Rotary Club has introduced me to a group of individuals dedicated to making a positive impact. Through the Rotary Club of Portishead, I was connected with Paul Darling, who learned about my journey of recovery from COVID-19. My transition was helped by my healthier lifestyle after a heart attack 8 year’s previously due to so called hereditary heath conditions! This allowed me to complete a 10km trail run, during which I raised £600 for local food banks.  The Rotary Club’s commitment to local and global communities resonates deeply with me, and their unwavering support has been instrumental in my journey. So I’m trying to show others across the region what they do and hopefully this challenge will attract a younger member to all the clubs involved which include Rotary Clubs in Bristol, Portishead, Truro and St Ives.  Furthermore, Birdwell School holds a special place in my heart as it is where my daughters, Lily and Daisy, attended. When Lily’s illness challenged our family, Birdwell School became a pillar of support, demonstrating the incredible strength of community bonds. Aligning perfectly with our vision for healthier living and communal care, I am determined to contribute to the school’s mission. My conviction is that individual well-being forms the foundation for strong families, resilient healthcare systems, and ultimately, a harmonious global community. This event symbolizes the significance of personal triumphs over adversity and the collective strength of united communities. This challenge is not only to promote healthier living but also raise funds and awareness for the Grand Appeal and raise with funding with Rieki therapy plus say a big thank you to Birdwell School and raise funds for an all-weather surface for their Sports Playground.”

A sixth man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering a 19-year-old in Bristol.

Since the moving appeal by mother of Eddie Kinuthia 6 arrests have been made but no one has yet been charged over Eddie Kinuthia’s death.

Eddie King Muthemba Kinuthia suffered multiple stab wounds during an attack on Grosvenor Road, in St Pauls, on 21 July and died in hospital.
Of the five men previously arrested, three are on conditional police bail, one was released under investigation and another is no longer a suspect.

The sixth man is in his 20s, from Bristol and is in police custody.

Press Release Ujima received from Avon & Somerset Police from last Thursday 10th August 2023:

Request to share appeals for information about the death of Eddie King Muthemba Kinuthia.

Dear community network member,

On Thursday, we held a news conference to support the investigation into the murder of 19-year-old Eddie King Muthemba Kinuthia in St Pauls in Bristol.

It’s now more than three weeks since Eddie was stabbed to death and there is a feeling the media have not given this tragic case the coverage it deserves. Eddie’s mother Irene bravely decided to put herself front and centre of the appeal, in the hope that people will feel moved to come forward and provide evidence which can help secure charges in the case. Irene’s statement was incredibly emotional and her courage to take this action while her grief is so raw is humbling.

As well as inviting our traditional media partners to the news conference, we invited community and youth leaders / influencers, as many in the St Pauls community knew and loved Eddie and have been greatly affected by his murder. Their support in spreading the appeal is essential for us to secure justice for Eddie’s family. We would also be grateful for your support in spreading the word.

We recognise many people in this community don’t trust us to keep them safe, due to a legacy of trauma in their interactions with police, and this may be why people are reluctant to come forwards and support the case. We are working hard to rebuild that trust and confidence but know it will take time.

Siren Bristol….

Siren Bristol – ” Never Ever has there been a more eclectic, inclusive, intergenerational, diverse, vibing, incredible, electric audience!”

By Miranda Rae – Station Manager/Presenter – Ujima Radio

From the moment you arrived at Siren Bristol you knew you were in for a great night, on entering the huge outdoor Amphitheatre space in the city centre of Bristol, you walk straight into Arena 2 promoting local artists and front and centre a huge Ujima Banner!

Ujima's CEO Faada Sojie at Siren Bristol 2023

For the 3rd year running organisers of Siren Bristol delivered an incredible event, this time lasting over 3 days and including a sell out performance with international superstar Sean Paul and a Hospitality Drum & Bass All Dayer on Saturday. Depending on your age and personal tastes you could argue which was the better day but kicking off with an incredibly clever and well thought out performance by Fabio & Grooverider and the Outlook Orchestra they covered 30 years of DnB from the conception of Jungle with classics like DJ SS and Lighter to Shy FX’s Original Nuttah, at which point had their been a roof on the Amphitheatre it would of been blown off.  It was incredible to see such a huge & diverse age range, literally from 18 to 80 years old and every single person in that crowd was a lover of the jungle and dnb vibes, be that an OG from the 90’s, Noughties or bang up to date, there was something for every body. Walking around the crowd it seemed like every single person knew the lyrics to every single song & the atmostphonere was electric!  And this was just night 1.

Roni Size

Massive kudos to Fabio & Grooverider who took time to acknowldge that jungle really did start in Bristol and Ujima’s very own Lawd Skrew could arguably be one of the main influencer’s & instigators. Mercury Prize winners: Roni Size, Krust, Die, Dynamite MC, Onallee & of course Ujima’s very own DJ SUV aka Reprazent were producing jungle to a standard never heard anywhere before and although the history books will tell you one story to the original crew, we all know it started in Bristol with reggae dub plates being mixed over techno tracks, but that’s a whole other story for another day…a personal highlight was seeing the 3 brothers who have had such a major influence on the Bristol music scene, again Lawd Skrew, The General and Roni Size, and I promise one day we will share that story with you (big love to Iva).

But for now the Ujima Family would like to say a huge thank you and congratulations to the Siren Bristol fam and especially Tom Hoyle and the Plaster Crew who went out of their to make us feel so welcome and support the Ujima cause! An incredibly well organised and delivered 3 day event that left the city buzzing and hoping that Siren Bristol will return for a 4th year…but will the continual city centre development allow for this, only time will tell.
