By Carmella Haswell

STAR society brings back the old school with a rave no 90’s kid can miss, this Thursday.

‘Rave 4 Refugees’ will help fundraise money for the International Care Network charity, a non-governmental organisation, who STAR (Student action for refugees) volunteer for.

The proceeds will help to provide English lessons for local refugees and Doctors Without Borders, who deliver emergency medical aid to people affected by the current crisis and conflict, worldwide.

Throwing back to the 90’s with a themed night, complete with bucket hats, diffraction glasses, UV lights and a couple of vodka jelly shots.

All that and a bag of chips.

Not to mention the line-up of local DJ talent including, FRAU DJs who will also be performing at this year’s BU Summer Ball, Hip Hop artist KB, WAYF Resident DJ Ben Read and more.

With over a hundred people already in attendance on the event posted on Facebook, and a couple hundred more interested, this is looking to be one big bash.

And why wouldn’t it be, with neon body paint and personalised snapchat filters galore.
