Ledbury Ukraine Aid was so overwhelmed with donations that they needed more space to store items ready to be transported to help Ukrainian refugees.
Update: Ledbury Town Council offered the Market House as a storage facility, but this will end on Saturday 16th April.
Note also that donations can no longer be accepted after that date at Pacific Dove.

After Easter, donations may still be left at the Halo Leisure Centre or the Library in the Masters House during their normal opening hours.
Alternatively, items may be taken to the Hereford depot at 37, Three Elms Trading Estate.
Hours there are 09:00 to 21:00 weekdays and 09:00 to 17:00 Saturday and Sunday.

The Market House was floodlit in the colours of the Ukrainian flag for a few evenings, but the lights were on loan and have now been removed.  Ledbury Town Council has obtained a Ukrainian flag, which is now on the flagpole by St. Katherines (see photo at the end of this article).

Organisers said: “A huge thank you to everyone who has helped, with donations, volunteering or even both!  It’s been wonderful to see all this generous Ledbury community spirit in action once again”.
