£7000 Collected for Ukraine

Rotarians and friends were at Booths supermarket from Thursday 10th March to Sunday 13th March 2022 collecting donations for relief work in Ukraine


The collection at Booths supermarket by Rotarians and friends collected £7,000 thanks to the generosity of the people of Knutsford.
Over 4 days there was a steady flow of donations from shoppers and to this sum Gift Aid will be aided.
President of Knutsford Rotary, Rick Dallimore said, ‘ We are very grateful to all those who donated so generously.  We chatted with many people and it is clear that there is a huge level of concern for the plight of Ukranians at this difficult time. and this was represented in the large sum given.   In addition to Rotary members and associates, we are also grateful to Knutsford Hosts, We-Are-Knutsford, Catenians and others who willingly helped with the collection, and we are, of course indebted to the management of Booths for allowing us to collect in their store.’
Rotary has many members in Ukraine and eastern Europe, who have mobilised local relief efforts in conjunction with the Red Cross and the United Nations, to address the needs of refugees, particularly those left behind. These Rotarians on the ground are well placed to identify and satisfy urgent needs, drawing on Rotary funding from around the world.  All donations  will therefore be directed to where it can do most good through the work of Rotary volunteers with nothing spent on administration.
