Our President Richard was privileged to represent the club at a concert in the beautiful Wolverhampton Ukrainian Community church. The folk songs performed by the orchestra were extremely poignant, presented by such warm, friendly people.
On Monday, April 4th, a new transport was sent to a refugee camp in Ukraine. This camp takes care of more than 1.200 refugees including children.
In a collaboration with RC Baia Mare, early in the morning, food, hygiene products, and other items were loaded into an 18 tonnes truck by RC Suceava Bucovina to be transported to a refugee camp in Ukraine.
- The goods were donated by a number of Rotary clubs including The Rotary Club of the City of Wolverhampton and Eichstätt Germany as part of the ICC Romania-Austria-Germany efforts. At its first stop in Suceava, other products such as 3,150 diapers, 80 sleeping bags, and food were added by RC Suceava Bucovina to reach the full capacity of the truck.
On behalf of refugees, we express our deepest gratitude to all contributors!

I was glad to be on hand at the today as the volunteers loaded a van – provided by Royal Mail – with relief goods for refugees fleeing the war. The van left us to collect a generator – again gifted by Royal Mail – and was then going on to Peterborough where the goods will be loaded, together with donations from across the UK, onto a fleet of large lorries going direct to Western Ukraine.
It was pleasing to be told, several times, that the Rotary Club of the City of Wolverhampton is held in very high regard by the community for the help we are providing.
