A FOLK concert held to raise funds for the people of war-torn Ukraine raised more than £1,000.
The afternoon concert was held by Chris McShane and the Penistone Folk Ensemble at St Andrew’s Church on Penistone High Street.
A total of £1,040 was raised for the UNICEF Ukraine Appeal for Ukrainians left in need after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, led by Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Artists including Chris McShane, Rod Egglestone, Clive Langman, Barnsdale Hood, Daz Barry, Ralph Shaw, The Flute Quartet, The Four Of Us, The Mandolin Group and The Penistone Folk Ensemble performed.
Alan Jones, one half of duo Barnsdale Hood, said: “It was a full and wonderful afternoon, with people popping in all through the afternoon keeping the church full and enjoying the music from local singers, groups and entertainers.”
We have been at the heart of our community, every week, since 1858. The town and its people have changed dramatically since then but the Chronicle has been a constant.
It’s our belief that news should be available to everyone regardless of their circumstance. But we need a little helping hand to do so.
Production Editor, Ashley Ball, said: "In an ever changing media world, it’s important that news is reported correctly and without any hidden agenda.
Your support allows us to keep holding decision-makers to account and report on everything that happens in the town, good or bad, fairly."
