"A local choir, Hoghton in Harmony, approached us about teaming up to host a fundraising night and essentially give the locals a chance to come together and do good. One of our family members, Alice Singleton, is a proud member of the choir.

"At Brindle Distillery, community is part of our core values, so it only felt right to use our platform and venue to try and create some goodwill and much needed funds.”

Tickets cost £8 and 100 per cent of tickets sales will go to the Disasters Emergency Committee, where it will be doubled by the UK Government through its UK Aid Match scheme up to the value of £20 million.

DEC charities and their local partners are in Ukraine and in neighbouring countries providing food, water, shelter and medical assistance.
