Lancaster’s Concert for Ukraine

We were asked to support a fundraising concert at Lancaster Grand to raise funds for Ukrainian families placed in Lancaster.

We played outside the venue before a reception to welcome the Ukrainian families to our city. Our drummers then had a theatre tour and met the other artists at the reception, before the fundraising concert.

Theatre Manager Eille Singleton said:

Response from the audience and members of the community has been overwhelming, and we are delighted to tell you that with your help, we managed to raise: £1635.07 for Lancaster & Morecambe City of Sanctuary and Lancashire County Council Refugee Integration team.

Your performance at the concert and involvement with Lancaster Grand Theatre is greatly appreciated and will not be forgotten

Earlier this year we also played alongside Batala Bermo and Batala Bangor at Batala Mersey’s fundraiser in Liverpool for the Red Cross Ukraine Crisis Appeal, which raised over £5,000.
