Thank you to all who joined us for the fundraising concert on 30th April, and to all those who gave such generous gifts. Donations are still coming in but our total looks to have greatly exceeded our expectation.
The hugely talented Ayman Jarjour captivated the audience with a range of traditional and contemporary music for the classical guitar, and included an improvisation on a familiar Syrian folk song – greeted with cheers from the audience!
Once totalled, all the funds will be sent to the two charities we advertised working on the ground – Operation Mobilisation and SHARE relief. Thank you to the speakers who updated us on that work.
