Ardal Aberystwyth Rotary Club volunteers were out in force at Morrisons in Aberystwyth last week collecting much needed funds for the victims of the Ukraine Crisis.

Thanks to the generosity of Morrisons customers, a total of £1,165 was collected in just two days.

Rotary International Clubs around the world are supporting the Ukraine Crisis Appeal and, through the network of Rotary Clubs close to the borders of Ukraine, all money raised is being sent directly for medical supplies and food.

Ardal Aberystwyth’s fundraising for Ukraine continues with £1,600 raised to date and more activities planned in the near future.

Is Lywydd (Vice President) of Ardal Aberystwyth Rotary Club, Barbara Salerno said: “We are overwhelmed with the kindness and support from the shoppers and staff at Morrison’s.  Knowing that every penny given will go directly to those in need is very heartening and, on behalf of all our members, a huge thank you to everyone who donated. “
