Locals organise charity event in support of victims of the Ukraine war
Winscombe residents are hosting a ‘Local Folk’ concert to raise funds in aid of the Disasters Emergency Committee’s (DEC) Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal. The event will be held at the Royal British Legion Winscombe Club on Saturday 23 April at 7:30pm.
It will be a memorable evening with a wide range of music and poetry performances, including Irish ballads, country and original music created by the local community.
Guests will be asked to take part in a raffle with numerous prizes donated by local businesses. The main prize is a Spring hamper worth £200, generously donated by us.
Nigel Carson, event organiser, said:“My wife and I have been watching the news teary-eyed every evening, so we decided to take action. We can all do our part to support those suffering and we therefore want to invite everyone to join us this Saturday.”
The venue, performances and prizes are all gifted and all funds raised at the event will therefore be donated directly to the DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.
Nigel continues:“This wouldn’t be possible without the generous spirits of performers, the Royal British Legion and the spectacular raffle donations, such as the hamper from Redrow South West.”
Charlotte Newnes, area sales manager in the South West noted:“With everything that’s going on in the world, most individuals wish to provide some assistance – but it can be difficult to know how best to do so. Here at Redrow we are delighted to offer our support to such an inventive charity event and we would recommend everyone join the event.”
