Dancers at the DeMeric Dance School in Farnham presented the Mayor of Farnham with a cheque for £550 for the town’s Ukraine Support Fund following a weeklong fundraising effort. 

Aurelia Whitfield, Principal at DeMeric says: “Students at the DeMeric Dance School wanted to contribute to the Ukraine Support Fund so each donated money in exchange for taking part in a mufti week. Instead of wearing everyday clothes, they used their creativity and imagination to dress up as fantasy characters like superheroes, fairies and princesses.” 

Upon receiving the cheque, the Mayor of Farnham, Councillor Alan Earwaker said: “I’d like to thank the DeMeric School of Dance on behalf of the fund for this excellent contribution.” 

The Ukraine Support Fund is one element of Farnham’s contribution – alongside Farnham Homes for Ukraine and Farnham Stands with Ukraine – to support Ukrainian people affected by the war. To find out more, email Farnham Town Council at

The DeMeric School of Dance runs classes in Farnham, Haslemere and Rowledge for children aged 2 and upwards, for advanced students and adults.
