raised of £5,000 target by 59 supporters

    Weʼve raised £7,698 to show support from the wider UK cinema industry for our colleagues and all others in need as a result of the war in Ukraine.

    Funded on Saturday, 30th July 2022

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    We have all watched with increasing horror and a sense of helplessness the unfolding situation in Ukraine following the invasion by Russia.

    Many have already donated to international relief efforts co-ordinated by the Disasters Emergency Committee, the Red Cross and others, all doing great work to help those in Ukraine affected by the conflict. Of course we are already seeing people in the UK following those in a large number of other European territories in opening up their homes to refugees.

    UK cinemas are already playing their part, with fund-raising preview screenings of the Swiss-Ukrainian film 'Olga' taking place in hundreds of cinemas now and across the coming weeks.

    But we also wanted to provide an opportunity for those working in the wider cinema sector to help individuals and their families in our industry that are impacted.

    On the advice of the national Ukrainian cinema trade body, all donations made will be directed to the Fedir Shpyg Charitable Foundation, which has long-standing experience in providing targeted charitable assistance. Beneficiaries will include those working in the Ukrainian cinema industry, their families and others affected by the conflict.

    This is an opportunity for all of those working in the cinema sector to show their solidarity with colleagues in Ukraine at a time of extraordinary need.

    Please donate by clicking the 'give now' button at the top of the screen. Thank you for any support you can provide.

      What is crowdfunding?

      Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

      The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

      Great people make things happen

      Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

      Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
