Broxtowe Borough Council has launched an Appeal for residents who wish to donate money or items to support the HumanitarianSupport for Ukraine - Aid Work taking place in Ukraine.

At a recent Full Council meeting, the Mayor of Broxtowe, Councillor Richard MacRae said, on behalf of the Council:

“This Council stands with the people of Ukraine and their friends and relatives living in the Borough and beyond. This is an unprovoked attack on a sovereign nation. The people that will suffer the most will be civilians on both sides.

We express our unity and support for President Zelensky, the democratically elected Government and the people of Ukraine and call on the UK Government and its NATO allies to offer the maximum humanitarian aid and support for the Ukrainian Government and people.

Broxtowe Borough Council is ready to step up to help refugees who have fled their homes.”

Broxtowe is in friendship with the town of Myszkow, Poland who are currently experiencing an influx of refugees, due to being located close to the Ukrainian border. This appeal will allow the people of Broxtowe to offer their support.

If you would like to make a donation, no matter how big or small to the Appeal, you can do so through our JustGiving page(Opens in a New Window)

If you would prefer to make a donation by cheque, please make the cheque payable to Broxtowe Borough Council and post it to:
