As most of my clients know, I am from Ukraine originally and lived in UK for more than 20 years now. With the war striking my home country last year, the life seemed to have gone on hold. Though I wasn’t there physically at the time to experience the horrors of missile attacks and russian unlawful actions, my heart is aching for my people.
I cannot fight the physical battles, but I want to help to the best of my abilities.
Since the beginning of the war together with my Ukrainian friend Iryna we’ve raised enough funds to send a few ambulances, transportation vans and jeeps to our local community in Uman. They are now helping to save lives.
But with Ukrainian armed forces having started to liberate our land from russian invaders, there is still a huge need for the evacuation vehicles to bring out wounded and civilians from the zone of fire. So we’ve decided to start another FUND RAISE for two 4 wheel drive cars. They will be purchased here in UK and transported to Uman with our trusted English friend and volunteer Jake Wood.
I really hope my charitable lottery for a photo session in Ukrainian theme with 5 digital images will work out and helps us to achieve out goal.
The photo session (£215 worth) is to take place in my photo studio in St. Austell in the end of July or end of August (I hope to visit my parents in Ukraine in between). I can provide the accessories etc, however Ukrainians, please bring your embroidered shirts.
The lottery is open to the people of all cultures, so I would be happy to do a non-Ukrainian theme photo session if you prefer!
At only £3 each you can buy as many tickets as you want. They will be entered into online lottery draw on 24th of July and the winner will be chosen. The draw will be done with the representative from Ukrainian group in Cornwall, to keep it as transparent as possible.
