PLYMOUTH UKRAINE MEDICAL AID (PUMA) FUNDRAISING EVENING
SUNDAY 5 FEBRUARY 7:45pm AT FOLK ON THE MOOR
THE MOORLAND HOTEL, WOTTER.
Instead of our usual Singers’ Night on 5 Feb, we have organised a concert at our usual venue to raise funds for Plymouth Ukraine Medical Aid (https://www.plympuma.co.uk/), a charity started a year ago and which has already sent tons of equipment and medical supplies.
I know personally four of the “movers and shakers” of the charity, three of whom have senior medical backgrounds and therefore have many invaluable contacts. I can vouch for their integrity.
PUMA has established excellent contacts in Poland, the Czech Republic and Ukraine, to ensure aid reaches the front line, where it is needed most.
The concert will feature extended spots from Silvington, Ben Campbell, Steve Jenner and Graham & Val Lobb and there will be a special appearance by two young Ukrainians, Liza Vorona and Mariia Mazhnikova (Masha), whom I heard singing together (a cappella) at an event in November – they sung absolutely beautifully and brought the house down!
They were winners of a national singing competition on Ukrainian First National TV.
Also at the November event, Liza’s mother, Helen, spoke very movingly of her experiences in Ukraine and will also speak at the concert – hearing such things at first hand really does bring home the trauma, that millions of Ukrainians are experiencing.
We aim to raise at least £500 for the charity and there will be a minimum £5 entry fee (please pay more if you can afford to do so) plus, of course, a raffle. All monies will be donated to PUMA.
