Hello... we are a diverse group of people living in and around Portsmouth UK, who love playing the ukulele and welcome new members of any ability.  Since we started performing in 2010, we have been responsible for raising over £51,000 for local charities.

Thanks to all those people who attended Pompulele 2018. With 23 ukulele acts of all shapes and sizes performing over the day with jam sessions every half-hour. We were lucky to have Andy Eastwood demonstrate just what you can do with a ukulele. We made over £1800 on the day towards the Rocky Appeal. Thanks also to all those who helped to make the day go so smoothly.

The charity we have supported this year was The Rocky Appeal, dedicated to fundraising for very specific life changing equipment and sits under the umbrella of Portsmouth Hospitals Charity. 
The Portsmouth Hospitals Charity announced on May 9th 2018, that The Rocky Appeal has reached its target of £2.4 million! We are so pleased to have supported the Da Vinci robot appeal.

Specifically, purchasing the Da Vinci Robotic Surgery equipment which has allowed surgeons to carry out operations that require very accurate surgery in confined areas of the body. This equipment has been hugely successful in treating prostate, gynaecological, colon and throat cancers with less invasive surgery, minimal scarring and much quicker recovery times. The Rocky Appeal has helped the Trust provide lots of additional equipment raising over £15 million since 1991, and providing support that would not otherwise have been possible through the traditional funding routes of the NHS.
