A FREE charity concert in support of Ukraine takes over the All Saints' Parish Church in High Wycombe. 

More than 40 musicians will entertain the audiences ‘Concert for Ukraine’ on Friday April 22 at 7.30pm in All Saints Parish Church .

The evening of music was a brainchild of Avril and David Thompson and a couple of their friends.

Although planning for the concert only started just weeks ago, they have been able to pull together an impressive ensemble.

Avril and David said: "Just over four weeks ago we thought that a "Concert for Ukraine” would be a very positive way of showing support for those people who are suffering so much in Ukraine.

"Local musician friends were contacted and responded willingly to perform and to give of their services free."

The classical concert features the Chiltern Concert Band conducted by Wing Commander Duncan Stubbs OBE, for many years the Principal Director of Music for the Royal Air Force, a Brass Quintet, and several instrumental and vocal items.

While the concert is free, a collection by cash or card will circulate around, giving the concert goers an opportunity to support Red Cross Ukraine appeal.
