Music for Ukraine

Over the past weeks we’ve all seen the situation in Ukraine steadily deteriorate beyond even the most pessimistic predictions.  The Ukrainians have resisted the might of the Russian Federation and refused to be overwhelmed.  This resistance and the escalating violence, seemingly directed at civilian populations, has led to the largest single movement of people in Europe since the Second World War – the Disasters Emergency Committee estimates that before the conflict is resolved there will be 4,000,000 people displaced. The vast majority of these people are women and children, the old and the young –  the most vulnerable people who have fled with what possessions they could carry.
Many of us want to help, but don’t know what we could do to make a difference.  One thing you are asked to consider is attend an evening of music organised by the Parish Council working alongside Sam Clarke and the Coniston Institute.  This will be on Saturday, 2nd April at 7pm.  Tickets are £10.  You can book a place by emailing the Parish Clerk at parish@coniston.info or by phoning 015394 41442.  Sam has found a wealth of musical talent who are offering their time and talents free of charge to help this cause. 
We will also be holding a raffle and selling tickets in the weeks before the concert.  Prizes have been donated by local businesses – the generosity of the local people will not surprise you, but the amazing array of quality prizes might. Details of how to buy raffle tickets will be circulated later this week.
