2016 Fund Raiser – Thank you from our Chair Jill Wells

Moved by the plight of the growing refugee situation around the world, Thirsk and Malton Labour Party organized an amazing evening of entertainment and speeches, which raised over £2,400 for 3 Refugee Charities.

The packed room at Pickering Memorial Hall on Wednesday 16th November was initially entertained by the local singing group Concordia. Next, Rob Lawrie, a charity worker from Leeds, who tried to rescue a refugee child, explained to the audience about the plight of refugees and unaccompanied asylum seekers in the now cleared Jungle in Calais as well as centres in Greece. The final act of the evening was the internationally acclaimed Sarah Jane Morris and Antonio Forcione who were just breath taking, such an honour to have them play in Pickering. They had added this date to their European Tour especially for us.

With ticket sales, refreshments and a rafle, the Thirsk and Malton Labour Party managed to raise over £2400. This will be divided between 3 Refugee Charities; HelpRefugees , Rob Lawrie’s charity and Khora making sure we help these forgotten people.

On behalf of the constituency party, I would like to thank all of those people who entertained and informed us about refugees as well as those people who came along and shared in the evening, organized the event, sold tickets, sold refreshments, hosted our entertainers and provided the sound equipment.

Thank you

Jill Wells
