The images of the desperate situation for those in Ukraine, and those who are fleeing or have fled the country, have affected us all. This is a particularly horrific time for the children of Ukraine, and the Choristers of Wells Cathedral wanted to do something to help them.

For the first time ever the Cathedrals Choristers will be camping in the Cathedral overnight, to raise funds for UNICEFS Ukraine Appeal.

On Friday 27 May 2022, tents will be pitched and sleeping bags rolled out inside the almost 850-year old Cathedral for a 14-hour overnight stay. The Choristers are very excited, but have been warned to wrap up warm as they will be sleeping on the cold, hard stone floor! Thanks go to the Cathedral Chapter for their support of this event, and to the Ancient Gatehouse Hotel who will be providing the Choristers and their adult helpers with an early breakfast on the Cathedral Green on the Saturday morning!

More than half of Ukraines 7.5 million children have now been forced to flee the ongoing violence. Homes, schools, water supplies, and hospitals have been damaged or destroyed. Children have been separated from their families, and hundreds of thousands of people have been left without clean water, food, or electricity. Explosives are a daily threat to childrens lives. UNICEF are working around the clock in Ukraine and at the borders of neighbouring countries, providing access to clean water, health care services, and other critical support. As the refugee crisis grows, their teams in Poland, Moldova, Belarus, Romania, Slovakia, Hungary, and Czech Republic are working closely with their UN partners to provide more humanitarian aid for children and families on the move. With your kind support, UNICEF can help more children and families affected by this crisis.

The Choristers would be very grateful if you could please sponsor them, and support UNICEFs vital Ukraine Appeal.
