We’re pleased to share that our fundraising weekend (March 12 &13th) for emergency aid to the Ukraine was a huge success! Many thanks to those of you who joined us and contributed funds which helped to raise nearly £2000. Here is where the funds went:

 

The Big Give for (Red Cross) Disaster Emergency Committee was able to turn £992 of the donations into £2,232 thanks to GiftAid/match-funding. The other £1000 was donated to a Hereford-based local initiate on Just Giving - ‘Transport of essential supplies to the Ukraine’. This group are providing lorries, volunteer drivers and logistics to transport much of the donated supplies collected within Herefordshire. They have been dispatching 1-2 lorries each week to their final destination within the Ukraine with essentials coming from collection points in Hereford, Leominster and Ross-on-Wye. The biggest expense they have is fuel for the return trip, which costs an eye-watering £3,000 per lorry.

 

We went to meet a volunteer driver and Andrew Lloyd (pictured below left and middle) last Wednesday near Ross-on-Wye. They are doing excellent work to ensure generous donations from our community make it to those in great need in the Ukraine.
