Your ticket also buys you entry to the Online Raffle Draw Extravaganza at 7pm on Sunday 22 November when there will be a live link up to Gaza for musical entertainment from talented young Palestinian musicians, courtesy of PalMusic.

MAP’s Zahra Yassine said: ‘As winter approaches, the COVID-19 pandemic is continuing to spread at an alarming rate the occupied Palestinian territory and the Palestinian refugee camps of Lebanon. Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP) is continuing to provide essential equipment and medical supplies to support infection control efforts and to help health workers treat those who have fallen ill from the disease.’

HRPSC Chair Katy Colley said: “This is a testing time for all of us but we know the need for basic healthcare is growing every day for Palestinians and the people of Hastings and Rye have a long history of reaching out and doing what they can to help. We are indebted to the generous donations from local businesses and individuals for these amazing raffle prizes, some of which would make great Christmas presents for friends or family.

On the night we will hear uplifting music live from talented Palestinian performers both in the UK and within Gaza, uniting and reminding us that no border in the world can break our common humanity.”
