Join the GraniAID Charity Festival 24.8.2023

The GraniAID charity event was held for the first time last year, accompanied by national media coverage:

The collection was targeted at local young people and Ukrainians refugees. The funds raised were channelled through the local charity, Grani Lähiapu, to their destinations.

The event was a success by all standards. In addition to the media, an estimated 3 000 visitors attended the event during the evening, on site at Kauniainen Market. The more than €20,000 raised for charitable distribution exceeded all expectations and sets this year’s target even higher.

GraniAID 2023:

This year the venue is Kauniainen city centre and in addition to the stage programme and festival event, there will be lectures on wellbeing.

The event will take place in the centre of Kauniainen 24.8.2023 at 17 – 22

Raka Bananer offers a colourful musical adventure where themes from children's everyday lives meet West African rhythms, dance and play. In interactive live performances, the themes of our songs come to the fore, such as divorce, refugee children and rainbow families, the courage to sleep with a friend for the first time and so on. The topics are sung and played with an open mind and from the child's point of view. Above all, we strive to bring joy, presence and community to our gigs. Jump on board our rhythmic journey!

Where to collect for the GraniAID event?

The funds raised by the event will be channelled through the charity organisation Grani lähiapu in Kauniainen.

Local young people

This year, the donations will be used to contribute to the construction of a multi-purpose field next to the youth centre. - The idea for the field came when a suitable location for a multi-purpose field was being considered. It seemed natural to place it in a place where young people already spend time, and so this was the choice. The pitch and its surroundings will be built in cooperation with the sports and youth services and the local authority.

Ukrainian refugees

We recognise the major challenges posed by the crisis in Ukraine and are committed to helping refugees. Our collection supports refugees by providing them with basic needs and helping them to adapt to their new life.
