Cyprus after the banking crisis is still alive and kicking as people turned out in their thousands to attend a charity concert. Admission to the day-long event in Nicosia- organised by Cyprus Aid - was free but revellers were asked to donate items, such as food and clothing, which could be distributed to the city's poor and unemployed. Volunteers were overwhelmed with hundreds of boxes of donations. One said: "We are doing this to help people and we want to send a message to people abroad that if we are united we can make things happen," Concert organiser, Nicko Zavallis, said the response from local people to the event had been "amazing". "We did not expect this outcome," he said. "People have been coming with trucks. Instead of a bag, they have been filling up trucks of goods and they have been bringing it to us."
