A SCHOOL is set to host a barn dance and concert in aid of war-torn Ukraine.

Ceilidh and barn dance band Spring Heel Jacks is hosting a Ukraine benefit with Chelmsford and Maldon Morris sides at Plume Academy in Maldon.

Guests should bring their own drinks and nibbles to the event on Saturday, May 7.

The lively band will entertain the crowd with its traditional tunes from 7.30pm until 11.30pm. 

Neither the band, nor Plume, will be charging for the event so all proceeds from ticket sales will go to the DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.

Tickets cost £10 and can be purchased from John Parsons by email at john.parsons1@sky.com or call 07809 271491.
