£1200 raised for Bromley Food Bank & Ukraine Appeal

We are proud to say that since we started our monthly Daylight Inn events in March 2022 we have collected a grand total of £1,200 from the admission price (still only £5), which we have donated to the Bromley Food Bank and the Ukraine UNHCR Appeal.

Thanks to all of you for coming along to listen to the band and it's most excellent guest singers and instrumentalists. You're supporting these charities just by being there. Without you these donations would not be possible; be assured you are making a difference in the world. 

Thank you. The Green Chain Quartet.
