Over £7000 raised for Save the Children Refugee Appeal from Porthleven Concert

By September 10, 2015Charity, news

Over 1,000 people took part in a charity fundraising concert in Porthleven to help refugees.

The Long Road, held on the village’s Moors playing field all afternoon and into the evening, has raised more than £7,000 for Save the Children in Syria.

Alongside the music, there was plenty for families to do in the afternoon.

The event had been organised at short notice by the team behind the Masked Ball music festivals, including Alec Short and Kelvin Batt.

Mr Short said: “We’d like to express our thanks to Porthleven Town Council for allowing this to happen and all the amazing sponsors and supporters.”

Porthleven’s councillor Andrew Wallis wrote on his blog: “The feedback from the event was all positive, and there are even calls for more events like this in Porthleven.

“Even the weather gods delivered too, with an almost clear and sunny day and warm evening.

“Porthleven can be proud it has done its bit in helping those caught-up with the crisis in Syria.”
