Birthday Gift for Ukrainian Families

The Black Hill Ukraine Group benefitted from two birthday presents earlier this month.

Dave Hughes, a service user and trustee of Services for Independent Lining (SIL) and his dad held a party for their joint January birthdays. But thanks to their generosity this was a party with a difference.

Dave and his dad asked all of their guests not to bring them a gift but instead to make a donation to help the Ukrainian people. This unusual request didn’t baffle partygoers as they know of the many kindnesses Dave has shown to local and national charities in the past. Instead they dug deep in their purses and pockets and between them raised an amazing £800.

This was handed over to Sue Robinson who is from The Black Hill Ukraine group and will support families in Dave’s Herefordshire area with accommodation and any extras that they may require.
