In the past week a venue in Carlisle held a music fundraiser event to raise money for the people of Ukraine. 

The Source in Carlisle held the event on April 30 and have raised an amazing amount for The British Red Cross Appeal.

We spoke to Poppy Rowan, who helped to organise the show, to see how it all went. 

Miss Rowan said: "It went really well, there was an amazing turn out and there was great support from all the locals. Everyone was more than happy to donate and buy raffle tickets, we've managed to raise £736 for The British Red Cross. 

"There were around 60 people in attendance which was a great turnout. Everyone, including the bands, had a great time and they were all really supportive."

There were a number of acts from across Carlisle who came out to perform on the night. Bees In Blankets, The Hardwickes, Dan Mason and Glass Gardens all played and were very well received by the crowd. 

Miss Rowan said: "It feels amazing and it just shows that anyone can do something to contribute. Obviously not everyone has a facility like a venue avaialble where they are able to put a concert on at. But I hope it's sparked motivation to encourage people to do things like bake sales in order to raise money. 

"It just shows that as a community we can do small things and every little helps in these situations. I can't imagine what help that this money will give to the people of Ukraine."

Poppy said that The Source have already started looking into doing another fundraiser. She said that if anyone else would like help in organising their own fundraiser then The Source would be more than happy to help. 

Busineses around the city helped out and donated vouchers for the raffle, this has now motivated and inspired The Source to do something similar. 

Poppy went onto thank the businesses who showed their support, as well as the bands and people who came along on the night.
