A three date charity concert showcasing the talents of local youngsters is to be held at Cumbernauld Theatre to help the children of Ukraine.

“We had previously launched the Kids For UNICEF Appeal around seven years ago when the crisis in Syria was unfolding, and working with Glasgow The Caring City and Cumbernauld Supporting Refugee's, we held a fundraising concert at The Westerwood Hotel with funds being distributed being all three charities. And so this seemed the perfect time to bring the project back.

“Our Patron, West End performer Kieran Brown, had also launched his West End For Ukraine Appeal and supported by fellow stars has raid around £8600 for UNICEF’s Ukraine Appeal and so it made sense to bring the project together with a target set at £10,000.”

The concerts will take place from Saturday, September 2 to Monday, September 5.
