Huddersfield Town Hall will host a fundraising concert for Ukraine this May. The fundraiser has been organised by Mandy and Ihor Cioch, members of the Huddersfield Ukrainian Club.
The Celebration of Ukrainian Culture concert will take place at Huddersfield Town Hall on Sunday, May 15th from 4 pm to 7 pm.
It will raise money for the people of Ukraine and hopes to bring recently arrived refugees and the people of Huddersfield together through celebration.
All of the money raised by the event will be donated to the Association of Ukrainians in Great Britain (AUGB). AUGB is coordinating an emergency appeal in response to the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.
