BROMSGROVE and Redditch Welcome Refugees are collecting clothes and hosting a concert to help provide and raise money for refugees fleeing civil war.

Volunteers from the group will be collecting donated clothes tomorrow (May 5) at The Bridge Church in Headless Cross.

The group will be there between 2pm and 4pm and encourage everyone to help out.

Sue Yeng, a member of the Committee at Welcome Refugees, said: “Adult clothing, practical shoes, backpacks, sleeping bags and blankets are all very much needed.

“Clothing for all ages and sizes are required and we’d like to thank everyone in advance who is able to donate.”

Meanwhile the group is also getting ready to host a folk and Indie concert called ‘Gimme Shelter’ on Thursday, May 10, at the Palace Studio.

Starting at 7pm all profits will be split between supporting refugees in Worcestershire and giving aid to camps in Europe and around the world.

Musicians Demi Marrine, Robbie Cavanagh, Jules Rendell, Nigel Clarke and Wes Flinch will be performing with Spoz presenting.

Robbie Cavanagh, who will be playing on the night, said: “I’m really looking forward to playing because the show is for a great cause and the venue is simply stunning.

“It’s set to be a really special night.”

Tickets are available to buy from The Palace Theatre Box Office or by calling 01527 65203.
