Help me Remain in the UK

Hi, most of you will already know me but for those of you who don’t my name is Augustine and I’ve been living in the UK since 2013. Since first moving to England I’ve worked in a range of places including Liverpool, London, Essex, Dorset, Durham and Sunderland. I have enjoyed living, working and studying in the UK and I have no doubt this land is home for me. I have had the amazing opportunity to study a BA and an MA at the University of Durham, all while working with refugees/asylum seekers and the College Bar. Since the national lockdown started in March, I have been working non-stop: presenting on BBC Radio 4, speaking at 10 different conferences, working with the UN Education Department and BBC Film, and speaking at around 15 Churches. As well writing a book that should be published in 2021.

In August, I was signed with OneTribe Talent to be a speaker and presenter for TV and radio. OneTribe is owned and operated by Dale Templar, an award-winning producer of Human Planet and much more. However, I am now reaching out to you for help as I need to raise £4500 in order to gain access to a global talent visa. This visa would allow me to continue my work speaking in-person, at conferences, on radio and on television. By just 300 people donating £15 each I can reach this goal and, after the 3 years with the global talent visa, I would be able to apply for Permanent Residency in the UK.

By donating £15, you can help enable me to apply for the visa. To say thank you for your support, if you are able to donate £5 or more, you will be invited to a stand-up comedy night and talent hosted by me in late January 2021. Thank you in advance for any and all of your support.
