At the meeting on 16 March, Bolsover Rotary agreed to donate the cost of complete Shelterbox to the Ukraine appeal.
The world is witnessing a vast humanitarian crisis unfold. As military activities escalate in Ukraine, hundreds of thousands of people are on the move, desperately trying to flee to safety. Innocent civilians are being killed, families and lives are being torn apart.
Nearly 10 million people have already fled Ukraine to other countries – that’s almost a quarter of Ukraine’s entire population. An additional 6.5 million people are now estimated to be displaced within Ukraine. Many are unable to leave because of damage to infrastructure, lack of resources, and the increased security risk.
Bolsover Rotary is donating £590, which is the cost of a full Shelterbox, to the appeal. This will include the Rotary share of the proceeds from the Charity Band Concert to be held on 9th April 2022.
