Charity Auction in Aid of Ukraine – Over £1,300 Raised

Charity Auction for Ukraine a Great Success

On Friday 1st April, TheStudios hosted a charity auction in aid of the Ukraine crisis. The event was held at TheStudios bar with residents and staff taking part in the auction. Up for the bidding were hotel stays, theatre tickets plus many more items kindly donated by local businesses.

Over £1,300 Raised for Ukraine in Charity Auction

The auction and buffet started at 8 PM, with Dave Gourley, Hospitality Manager hosting. Dave Gourley explains how the event came about:

“I was inspired by seeing the devasting scenes unfolding on the news and was also approached by Emily, a resident of TheStudios. We knew we wanted to help, so put our heads together and came up with the idea of a Charity Auction. We wanted all proceeds of the event to go direct to the frontline via the Salvation Army.”

Residents turned up in their numbers on the night and raised the following:

£552 from the charity auction

£108 from ticket sales

£15 from the raffle

And over another £700 from donations!

Over £1,300 was raised by generous residents and staff for this urgent cause! The auction was then followed by live music from local musician Josh.

Marking World Health Day

Today is international World Health Day! Inaugurated by the World Health Assembly in 1950, it promotes awareness of health as a human right globally. Every year a different theme and focus are presented, with the primary goal of promoting access to the best health care, no matter who you are.

TheStudios Blog World Health Day 2022

Healthy people, healthier planet

This year, the focus is on urgent actions needed to keep humans and the planet healthy. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), an estimated 13 million or more deaths will be caused by avoidable environmental causes. Although the world is still struggling through the pandemic, the climate crisis is undeniably the greatest health crisis.

Now more than ever, World Health Day is an important time to be mindful of your own health, those close to you and around the world. Over 90% of people still breathe unhealthy air due to the continued use of fossil fuels. There are food and water shortages due to weather events, and plastic is entering the food chain.

The World Health Organisation has underlined the urgency to create well-being societies committed to achieving equitable health. Now and for future generations, it’s possible to enact change for yourself, locally, nationally, and globally.

Get involved on World Health Day

WHO are urging governments and the public through their ‘Our Planet, Our Health’ campaign to share their stories of how they are taking action to protect the planet. You can get involved and download the campaign toolkit here.
