Haslemere Fringe Festival session raises £1,400 for the Ukraine Support Appeal
THE HASLEMERE Fringe Festival team has raised money to help people in Ukraine.
The fringe committee took the decision to donate the proceeds of Saturday night’s Fringe Session gig to a charity supporting people in Ukraine.
The newly-formed Fringe Sessions promote local emerging and original talent on the first Saturday of each month.
Saturday’s event attracted more than 120 people and raised £1,400 for the Ukraine Support Appeal.
Taking place at the Shottermill Club, near Lion Green, the upbeat evening included performances by multiple live bands followed by a DJ set until 1am.
The March line-up was opened by Big Red Sky, an eight-piece band aged between nine and 17, followed by local favourite Eloise Carter, young female-fronted group Creature of Habit, an acoustic set from Yellowlees, and alternative rock band Risking Nostalgia.
The evening was rounded off by a set from DJ Louis Vass.
All the performers and the Shottermill Club donated their fees which – combined with the £5 per person entrance tickets and generous private donations – culminated in the significant contribution to the Ukraine Support Appeal.
