Thank you so much to everyone who attended the Firefly Gala at St. Paul’s Church last week. With your generous support we have raised more than £22,000.
Huge thanks to our performers Neil Stuke, Pandora Colin, Patrick Terry, Rihab Azar, Project Coast, Kenza Stamselberg, Nick Edward Harris and Josh Vivian, and to Chris Mann for compering.
There were moving performances, musically and in the spoken word, and information on our programmes from Harry Crawley, Julie Norburn and Maria Chambers. Ammar Haj Ahmed and Jeremy Irons were unable to attend but sent wonderfully powerful films.
The event would not have been possible without our sponsors and all the wonderful volunteers who gave time and huge energy. Special thanks to Augusta Higson and Henrietta McMicking.
All funds raised will go directly to supporting our partner charities in Bosnia, Turkey and Syria, creating safe spaces, education opportunities and skills to help build for the future.
