Art for Bhopal at Jonestown Coffee

Jonestown

Proprietor of Jonestown Coffee, Adrian Jones, is a long-standing supporter of the BMA. It all began when an extremely out of shape Adrian surprised his friends and family with an attempt at the London 10K, back in 2010, which almost finished him off!

Throughout 2014, Adrian hosted a 30th anniversary exhibition, on our behalf, in his Bermondsey Street Coffee shop, and has now generously allowed space in his new ‘Jonestown’ coffee shop on London’s trendy Bethnal Green Road. All of the art on display is for sale and 100% of the proceeds go to the BMA.

Jonestown are also recruiting for our sponsored run events and Adrian, who has worked miracles on his own personal fitness, looks set for a proper crack at this year’s London 10K!

We believe Dow & DuPont must finally accept responsibility for Bhopal. Until then, The Bhopal Medical Appeal funds two award-winning clinics in the city. Both offer free, first-class care to victims of the gas disaster or the ongoing water contamination. The survivors have nowhere else left to turn – please help if you can.
