No one enjoys playing in Scotland more than we do, and we are sure that Simple Minds fans from far and wide will want to join us for what is set to be a memorable concert in our capital city. We look forward to it immensely!”

UNICEF Ukraine Appeal - £3 Voluntary Donation

DONATE TO PROTECT CHILDREN IN UKRAINE

The whole child population of Ukraine, 7.5 million children, is now at risk as the conflict continues to escalate. With explosions in major cities across the country and thousands of families being forced to flee their homes, UNICEF is calling for an immediate ceasefire.  Homes, schools, water supplies and hospitals have been damaged or destroyed. Children have been separated from their families and hundreds of thousands of people have been left without safe water, electricity or water. Explosives including landmines are a daily threat to children’s lives.

More than 3 million people have now fled Ukraine, with the number expected to climb to 5 million.  Unicef are working round the clock to keep families safe.  Please donate to help protect children in Ukraine.

Registered charity 1072612 (England and Wales) and SC043677 (Scotland).
