Peta Allingham, organiser of the events, said: “Local performers in and around Preston are putting on a showcase of talent this weekend to raise urgently needed funds for the fleeing refugees from Ukraine.

“There are many musical styles and venues have offered their services and talents for free.

“Charities connected with the Disasters Emergency Committee will be in attendance to collect all your lovely donations so that they all go directly to the cause. We need the people of Preston to come out and support them.
