Make Music Not War

May 4, 2022

For one night only: 9th May Team AdInMo UK will be switching gears from games to music to Stand with Ukraine

#Westandwithukraine and we’ve got one goal: to raise as much money as possible to help those fighting and fighting to survive the war in Ukraine.

On 9th May we’re hosting a concert at the Voodoo Rooms in Edinburgh as part of our fundraising efforts. Our colleagues and friends of Team AdInMo in Ukraine has selected different local volunteer and charity organisations they would like to see much-needed funds go to and our event partners HipHarpCollective and Association of Ukrainians in Great Britain (AUGB Edinburgh) have done the same.

So far, we’ve raised over £11K thanks to kind donations, ticket sales, an office quiz and the very generous support of our corporate partners Chiene & Tait, Kingsford, MBM Commercial, Par Equity and Shepherd Wedderburn.

All the artists performing at the Voodoo Rooms Edinburgh are giving their time for free… and you only need to look at the incredible line-up just to see how very a special evening it’s going to be…
