Despite being at war with Russian forces, Ukrainian soldiers have kept their spirits up by dancing for an army of followers on social media.

Now, a community interest company is encouraging Kintyre people to use the power of dance to help support those soldiers and their compatriots.

West Kintyre Promotions (WKP) has announced that its ‘dance anthems’ show in Tarbert Village Hall next Saturday (April 23) will raise funds for UNICEF’s humanitarian appeal for Ukraine.

The show was set up as a donations-only event but, now, all money collected on the door will be sent to support Ukrainian people during this time of crisis.

A spokesperson for the group said: ‘DJ Harv3y has been desperate to play for us for a couple of years but, due to Covid, we have had to cancel so many times.

‘We felt awful so we decided, when we finally got to do the show, we would make it free entry and just ask people to pay what they could afford in these difficult times.

‘Now those donations will go directly to UNICEF. We really just want to do something, however small, to help.’

Free tickets are available at the Corner House in Tarbert and online at www.skiddle.com to give WKP an idea of numbers ahead of time.

There will be a bar on the night, a raffle, ultraviolet face-painting and DJ Harv3y has promised a show full of ‘banging tunes’ and lighting effects. He has even lined up a vocalist to sing some dance classics live.

Ordinarily, a show like this would be around £12 a ticket. Everyone at WKP hopes that as big a crowd as possible will go along to support this show.
