Next Thursday 23rd February, the financial services industry is putting on a fundraiser for our work in Moldova. ‘Rock for Ukraine‘ will feature a band called Consumer Duty, and is sponsored by companies including Nucleus, Novia, Morningstar, M&G Wealth, Quilter, Transact, the Lang Cat and Threesixty.
The event is being oganised by Phil Billingham, David Crozier and Shannon Currie—financial planners who have already raised thousands to support Ukrainian refugees and even drove a van packed with supplies to the Polish border at the outset of the war. Since July last year, Phil, David Crozier and Shannon have been steadfast supporters of our work.
With this event, they have high hopes of raising £40,000, which would allow us to support 4,500 refugees in Moldova for a month. “We are in a privileged position of being able to help. By raising funds for Refugee Support Europe, we can do that,” Phil told the Financial Times. “With the generous support of our sponsors and corporate donors, we’re well on our way to that amazing figure.”
Shannon added that they have been “blown away” by the industry’s response. “Everyone’s willingness to help with raising funds and volunteering their time to make the event a huge success has been nothing short of overwhelming,” she said.
