A WEB page has been created by Malvern Hills District Council detailing fund-raising events and appeals in the area for the hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians fleeing the war-torn country.
To find out more about what is being done locally, people can log onto malvernhills.gov.uk/community/support-for-ukraine
A number of community groups and businesses are holding fund-raising events and appeals for donations of items to send to refugees.
Malvern Rugby Club, Chernobyl Children’s Lifeline and Austin and Co are among organisations which have already set up events or activities for the people of Ukraine.
And any other community groups organising events can add them to the page by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
The council is also urging residents to support the country’s national campaign which has seen the UK’s Disasters Emergency Committee co-ordinating the efforts of 15 agencies to help people who have fled Ukraine or been displaced to other parts of the country, following the invasion by Russia.
Malvern Hills District Council leader Coun Sarah Rouse said: “It has been truly horrifying witnessing the shocking scenes unfolding in Ukraine.
“I am proud of how our communities have come together to raise funds and collect donations to support those affected by the conflict.
“We also stand ready to do whatever we can to help resettle Ukrainian refugees, should we be asked to do so by the Government.”
