South Derbyshire District Council’s Leader, Councillor Kevin Richards, has joined council leaders in condemning Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Councillor Richards said: “Like everyone, I have been shocked and appalled by the invasion of Ukraine by Russian forces and by the scenes of ordinary Ukrainian people who have been killed or badly injured.

“Like me, many South Derbyshire residents have been horrified by what they have seen. Many people have contacted me to find out how they can donate to help ordinary people who are suffering.

“We have made information available on the council website with information on where they can donate. Please give as much as you feel able to do to support people affected by the conflict.”

The Ukrainian Country Social Club "Hospoda" in Weston on Trent is collecting for the #HelpUkraine Emergency Appeal. Over £1m has been donated already.  To donate, visit: #HelpUkraine Emergency Appeal.
