St. Bartholomew's Quorn

Concert for Ukraine

On 14th May our Church held a concert in aid of the Red Cross Ukraine Crisis Appeal.

Due to the generous donations from the wider community in sponsorship and time all money raised will be donated directly to the appeal.

It was wonderful to see the community, young and old come together in our church for the people of Ukraine. 

Total amount raised from this concert is an amazing £2752.
