Elles Bailey, Sari Schorr and Mike Ross are part of a host of stars who will gather at The Harlington, Fleet, on 10 April 2022 for the sold-out unique Gig 4 Ukraine event. A small number of returns are available at the box office on 01252 811009, between 10 am and 2 pm. A live stream option is now available.
“My roots run deep in Ukraine,” Sari told MetalTalk. “My family comes from Kyiv. I’m horrified at the brutal attack on Ukraine and the human toll it is costing. Yet, inspiring sights of ordinary people doing extraordinary things keep me hopeful. All I can do is lend my voice to stand in solidarity with the Ukrainian people in total support of their freedom and democracy.”
“I feel very honoured to have been asked to take part in this show raising money for the people of Ukraine,” Elles told MetalTalk. “I have watched the news, heartbroken at the unfolding humanitarian crisis and have wanted to help in whichever way I can.
“Everyone is giving up their time for this show which means 100% of the proceeds are going to the DEC and the people who need it most. I really hope you can join us and raise as much as we can for this worthy cause.”
The Disasters Emergency Committee Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal will receive all proceeds. “The council were very adamant,” organiser Alan Bates said, “that if we were going to use their venue for free and have their name attached to it, we should be using one of the mainline charities. This is a direct line to the Ukraine humanitarian appeal and is about funding the things needed for these people, sanitation, medical care, food, shelter and water.”
The price has been kept affordable, and given the lineup and the cause, this is a must-see event.
