The ongoing crisis between Russia and Ukraine has brought with it devastating consequences which has led to the displacement of over 4 million children.

Auction organiser Mark Walker from Worksop, presented the generous donation to officials at the Ukrainian Embassy in London on May 18. He said “ it was a really humbling experience, they were happy and very pleased to receive it”.

He added “I would also like to say thanks to Rob Linacre, Wayne Samuels and Craig Frost for their help”.
