Aid to Ukraine

Following the invasion of Ukraine by Russia there has been a desperate need for humanitarian aid and Rotary has responded.

We have recently been involved in helping fellow local Rotary clubs, Newton Abbot and Braunton Caen in gathering various essential items and PPE for transport to Poland and Hungary for onward transmission to Ukraine.

This was coordinated at very short notice by Rotarian Peter and his wife Val.

We estimate that around £10,000 worth of goods were donated by members and friends - a truly marvellous effort - many thanks to all concerned.

All items reached their destination by mid April thanks to the  efforts of local Rotarians and Rotary clubs in the area.  This is one of the benefits of being part of an international organisation.

We shall not rest on our laurels.  As refugess arrive in our local area we shall continue to offer support through the 2022-23 Rotary year.
