There are no borders nor limits to our Orchestra. Thanks to our incredible international Collection Centres, the 31st Grand Finale is held in such distant places as Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, the UK, the USA, and at the Polish Polar Station Hornsund in Norway.




Where the sun rises first

Some of our Collection Centres have in fact already closed their gates… As the sun in Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and Indonesia slowly goes down, our amazing Collection Centres are sharing their preliminary results and fantastic photos from their Grand Finale activities.

Melbourne, for instance, have totally nailed it! The Collection Centre have raised as many as PLN 43,000 during a three-hour-long Grand Finale. Luckily enough, none of the deadly intruders, incl. spiders and snakes, have killed the mood, they report. Look at those happy faces!

Even more winter swimmers in the Netherlands

One of the Dutch Collection Centres also encourages all the brave to join in for outdoor swimming. That should be a truly thrilling experience! Be brave, though, a hot cap of tea will wait for all the adventurers.



Love is in the arctic air
