Mayor of Hereford, Cllr Paul Stevens, and Cllr Kath Hey visited the Three Elms Ukraine Donation Centre on 30th March, meeting Olga Tverdokhlib, who is coordinating much of the aid and volunteer effort in Hereford to support Ukrainian refugees.
Herefordshire has shown a tremendous amount of support for Ukraine’s people following the Russian attacks. Olga has spearheaded this monumental effort, raising money and receiving donations, as well as seeing to the delivery of these supplies, setting up a Facebook page, and promoting the cause. It’s inspiring to see such dedicated determination in the face of such devastating events.
Many tonnes of support aid recently left by the lorry load to Ukraine, and a video can be viewed on the ‘Hereford Help for Ukraine’ Facebook page.
The Centre still urgently needs donations, including baby food, medication, sleeping bags, baby nappies, and long life foods. Visit their Facebook page for a full list of wanted items – These can be dropped off at Unit 37, 3Elms Trading Estate, Hereford. HR4 9PU, Monday to Friday between 9am and 7pm and Saturday between 9am and 5pm.
The Tourist Information Centre in Hereford Town Hall is also selling small items in support of Ukraine, provided by the Centre. These include ribbons, headbands, knitted hearts and more. Sales go directly to Ukrainian support.
