Enormous thanks to everyone who supported the pop-up concert last Friday night. Together we raised an amazing £1202, which will be distributed to East Lothian Aid for Refugees and East Lothian Welcomes Refugees. People were very generous with their donations of wine and baking – so many people came along that the church was packed full! Thanks to Jane Burns who told us a little about the work of ‘East Lothian Welcomes Refugees’.
And to set the record straight – it was all Hazel’s idea in the first place, so well done to her!
