A concert held at Holy Trinity Church, Minchinhampton, raised more than £765 for the stricken people of Ukraine.
Alexander Semple (violin) and Madeleine Brown (piano) who are reading music at Cambridge University played pieces from Central and Eastern Europe to an audience of more than 70 people, including representatives of the Ukrainian community who came from Gloucester.
Organiser Maria Semple said: “Two Ukrainian girls were particularly moved by Lysenko’s Prayer for Ukraine and came to see us at the end of the concert to express their gratitude for the overwhelming generosity of the British people and the local community. The concert was extremely well received by an appreciative audience and all the proceeds have been given to Tearfund’s Humanitarian Appeal for Ukraine.
“We are grateful for the support of Holy Trinity Church, Box Village, Minchinhampton Fitness Hub and everybody who came to the concert.”
