Ed Sheeran, Elbow, Snow Patrol and more donate to DEC Ukraine humanitarian appeal

Mr. Nimbus | 03/31/2022

Major artists including Ed Sheeran, Snow Patrol, Elbow, The Chemical Brothers and George Ezra have come together to announce a series of exclusive prize draws to benefit the Ukraine humanitarian aid appeal set up by the Disasters Emergency Committee,

The United Nations have now stated that over 10 million people have fled their homes to avoid the war in Ukraine, with over 3.5million of those having left the country. At Ukraine’s borders with Poland, Romania, Hungary, Slovakia and Moldova, huge numbers of people are arriving with only what they can carry. These people are in desperate need of food and shelter, and the most effective way we can help is to raise money as quickly as possible.

£5 draw tickets are on sale now here.

All proceeds will be immediately paid over to the DEC once each draw ends. Winners will be drawn at random, with customers able to buy up to ten draw tickets at a time for each prize, and able to donate further monies to the appeal if they wish. Organisers, Crosstown Concerts,, intend to run these draws for as long as necessary, and more prizes will be announced on a weekly basis . The first ten prize draws have been confirmed as follows:

ED SHEERAN – three groups of three people can accompany Ed in his private hospitality box to watch an Ipswich Town home game

ELBOW – attend one of the band’s 2022 UK headline shows, plus meet the band backstage
