Sally Boazman, better known as BBC Radio 2’s much loved Sally Traffic, is hosting a one woman show in aid of international development charity Transaid on Saturday 6 March 2010 at North London’s ArtsDepot.
Guaranteed to entertain and delight, the show will draw upon Sally’s life before and during her time at the BBC where she has worked with some of the most famous presenters in the country including Johnnie Walker, Chris Evans, Steve Wright and Jeremy Vine – sharing tales of famous people she's met along the way, and also revealing some off-air secrets!
Highlighting her passionate support for Transaid, Sally explains: “We are all aware of road safety issues in the UK and I regularly help drivers avoid delays caused by road traffic accidents. However, I also feel it is important to support road safety initiatives in the developing world, where the issue becomes even more pertinent as often no emergency services or solid infrastructure exists. Transaid is working hard to tackle these extremely important and often largely ignored problems, and it’s a pleasure to support them.”
Chris Saunders, Transaid’s Chief Executive adds: “We are extremely grateful to Sally for her ongoing support of Transaid and are delighted that she has offered to help in this way to further awareness and raise much needed funds.”
Proceeds from the evening will help Transaid to continue its vital driver training in Zambia and other parts of Africa, which is helping drivers to become more risk-aware through obtaining the necessary skills to drive more safely and efficiently.
Sally has enjoyed a long-standing relationship with Transaid, having supported the charity’s 10th Anniversary Ball in 2008 and also undertaken an epic journey across Kenya’s Rift Valley as part of the Transaid Cycle Zambia Challenge in 2007. More recently, Sally provided the voiceover to a short film on the Transaid Bicycle Ambulance Project in Zambia which can be viewed at www.youtube.com/user/Transaid1.
