THAT HACKNEY hive of happiness, the Russet, near the northwest corner of Hackney Downs, is next month hosting a live-music night in a good cause.
The event is part of a six-month campaign to raise money for the Prince’s Trust, a youth charity set up in 1976.
The Russet is a popular café, despite its near-hidden location and it’s becoming increasingly popular for the acoustic music it presents in its capacious interior.
The organiser of the music evening, technology business CTS Innov8 is trying to raise more than £10,000 as part of a campaign named Million Makers which aims, logically enough, to raise £1 million.
The trust will funnel the money towards budding entrepreneurs in its enterprise programme.
