Raunds Supporting Ukrainian Refugees

Raunds Supporting Ukrainian Refugees

At Raunds full Council meeting last week councillors discussed what action Raunds Town Council could take in support of the people of Ukraine, you may have already noticed some of these around town and will hopefully continue to see more.

The Mayor had a fundraising stall at last Saturday's Market which was a huge success, with over £200 raised for the British Red Cross Ukrainian Crisis Appeal. Thank you so much all who donated.

The Ukrainian flag has been raised this morning and is currently flying outside the Town Hall, further showing our support to all the people of Ukraine and those affected by the war.

Raunds Town Council are working with North Northants Council to establish ways in which we can use our resources to further help Ukrainian refugees.

"We are shocked and appalled at the ongoing conflict and humanitarian crisis within Ukraine and wish to show our support for the people of Ukraine at this most difficult time". Mayor of Raunds Cllr Sylvia Hughes
