Take a look at how the Concert for Ukraine in Twickenham went and how you can continue to donate for a great cause
On 28th June the Twickenham community of the Religious of the Assumption collaborated with Strawberry Hill Overseas and Community Concern (SHOCC) to organise a fundraising 'Concert for Ukraine' in the beautiful setting of the Waldegrave Drawing Room in St Mary's University, Twickenham.
The highly successful evening featured young Ukrainian Musicians from the London Performing Academy of Music (LPMAM), violinist Marina Raievska accompanied by Richard Black, singer Maryana Bodnar, and the Stefania Dance Ensemble.
Bishop Kenneth Nowakowski, the Bishop of the Ukrainian Catholic Church in London, not only led all present in a moving prayer for Ukraine, but auctioned a magnum of champagne raising a significant amount of money for the charities being supported.
All proceeds from the concert will be divided between the Assumption project to provide psychological support to teachers in Ukraine, and LPMAM.
Donations can be made here.
The sisters would like to thank St Mary's University for all their support for the concert, especially the Vice-Chancellor, Anthony McClaren, who introduced the evening.

As 1.5 million young Catholics made their way to the World Youth Day events in Lisbon from all over the world with Pope Francis, the Assumption Youth Team banded together with Pax Christi, CAFOD and the Sion Community to celebrate with young people in the heart of London, in Notre Dame de France Church.
On 29th July many sisters and friends of Sr Christine gathered in Twickenham to celebrate her platinum jubilee of religious life. After a beautiful mass in St Mary's University, Twickenham, celebrations continued over lunch in the convent.
The official World Youth Day celebrations take place in Lisbon, Portugal this summer with Pope Francis, reflecting on the theme: "Mary arose and went with haste" (Lk 1:39). For those who cannot travel there in person, the Assumption Sisters’ youth team in collaboration with other movements and groups, are offering a day celebration in Central London on Saturday 5th August 2023 from 11am-5pm in the church of Notre Dame de France in Leicester Square.
