Haslemere Rotary Club is helping keep Ukrainians warm this winter.

The Haslemere branch has joined the district Rotary initiative to collect fleeces, winter coats, sleeping bags, jumpers, winter socks, woolly hats and other warm items for Ukrainians.

The district Rotary will collect and pallet the donated winter clothing.

This will go to a reception centre, be loaded on to a large truck and driven to France, where it will be placed on a train through to the border with Ukraine. It will then go on a train which will take it to Ukraine’s Rotary clubs for distribution.
