Sebastian Kobelt said:
“It’s impossible just to sit back and watch the war unfolding and do nothing. I have my own family and it’s heartbreaking to watch so many families being separated without knowing whether they will ever see each other again.”
“The raffle will go a little way to show that Scotland’s food and drink community stands firmly with the people of Ukraine, and hopefully we can go some way to raise much-needed funds for people who are fleeing the war. Many thanks to all my fellow producers and restaurateurs who have generously donated prizes."
“£100 could provide emergency food for two families for one month. We’re aiming to sell at least 500 tickets, so we can support 100 families.”
Tickets are on sale now at app.galabid.com/fundsforukraine. Tickets cost £10 each and 100% of the money raised will go to the DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal. The winners will be drawn at random on 27th May 2022, and winners will be contacted by email on 3rd June 2022
