Korean Arts Festival raises funds for Kingston Hospital Charity

6 September 2022

On Sunday 4 September, the Korean Culture & Arts Centre presented a Korean Arts Festival at the Rose Theatre in Kingston, with proceeds from the event donated to Kingston Hospital Charity. During the performance, a certificate was presented to the Korean UK Nurses Association (KUNA) represented by a group of nurses from Kingston Hospital, in appreciation of their dedicated work during the COVID pandemic.

Since the start of the pandemic the wider Korean community, including Korean Senior Citizens UK, Korean Residents Society, London Full Gospel Church and the Korean Chamber of Commerce have donated over £75,000 in support of Kingston Hospital, and this is the second consecutive year that the Rose Theatre has hosted a performance of traditional Korean music and dance to raise funds for Kingston Hospital Charity.

Jo Farrar, Chief Executive of Kingston Hospital and Hounslow and Richmond Community Healthcare, attended the event to thank the Korean community for their generosity and continued support.
