GIBRALTAR Easter Fundraiser Raises £3700 for Ukrainian Charities as Ocean Village enjoyed its first public event since 2019 on Saturday April 16.

The event saw the marina bustling with music, art, Ukrainian culture, superheroes, great food and smiling faces.

Chocolate was the order of the day as 168 excited children joined in the Easter Egg Hunts around the Ocean Village Marina led by none other than Alice from Alice in Wonderland and the Easter Bunny.

Alexa Donovan and Tony Gaul MBE from the Mindspace Project, encouraged the children to run and play with their “Fitness with a difference” games, competing in egg-and-spoon races and other fun activities.

The Musicians Association of Gibraltar put on an amazing show by Café Fresco with a fantastic line-up of local bands and the Gibraltar Cosplay Group wowed the public dressed as Batman, Superman, Elsa, Ursula, and a Stormtrooper from Star Wars!

The Ukrainian community led by Nadiya Miller produced beautiful arts and crafts and delicious Ukrainian treats which were sold on the day.

An impressive £2,700 was raised at the event itself and Ocean Village generously added an additional £1,000.

The total of £3,700 will be shared between two worthy charities: https://www.paracrew.org and https://palianytsia.com.ua.

Emilia Hazell-Smith, Marketing and Events for Ocean Village said:

“We were delighted to hold the Ukraine Easter Fundraiser at Ocean Village on Saturday. It was an extremely successful day celebrating Ukrainian culture whilst raising much-needed funds for such an important cause.

“We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to the local community for supporting our event and in particular, our sponsors and volunteers.”
