Fundraising event for the people of Ukraine, with live music, art sale and raffle

Posted On 19 Mar 2022 at 3:06 pm

In times of real crisis, people do the most wonderful things to help others. The people of Brighton and Hove are no different. We are all aware of the sickening warfare that is going on in the Ukraine. Many of you would have already seen that the Royal Pavilion is lit up at night in the blue and yellow colours of their flag in order to show our solidarity.

There are many ways in which people can get together and do their bit. One such example is going to be taking place at Presuming Ed’s Coffee House located at 114-115 London Road, Brighton, BN1 4JG, on Saturday 26 March from 2pm to midnight.

They will be hosting a fundraising day and all money raised from tickets and art sales will go to the IRC (International Rescue Committee).
