The Ukrainian community came together to collect donations at Carlisle United Football Club with the support of Multicultural Cumbria and raised £2318. Thank you to all the CUFC supporters that gave so generously!
According to the DEC Appeal:
£30 could provide essential hygiene supplies for three people for one month
£50 could provide blankets for four families
£100 could provide emergency food for two families for one month
so this amount of money will make a tremendous difference.
We had a great time bringing diasporic communities together from Asia, Africa and Europe to support those affected by the Ukrainian crisis. For many, it was the first time they had attended a CUFC match, and what a match it was! It was nail-biting right to the end. Football really does bring everyone together.
