Our GoFundMe fundraiser

With growing numbers of people leaving Ukraine for the UK, and the visa process showing only tentative signs of speeding up, hosts are increasingly using their own money to support their guests until they arrive.

The Berkhamsted and Tring Ukrainian Host group has found homes for 100 people in their local community, but now we need your help. With the money you give we can:

- Pay for temporary accommodation until visas are approved. Refugee centres are overwhelmed, and conditions are far from ideal.
- Buy essentials for new arrivals, including school equipment, toys, clothes and books.
- Pay travel costs for those needing to get to the UK.

There are no admin costs or overheads. 100% of your contribution will go to where it is most needed. If you would like more information please do not hesitate to get in touch.

The community group consists of a lead team of six volunteers which has assembled to oversee the group and offer support to both refugees and hosts – and to ensure that donations are used distributed fairly and sensibly. These are the members of the group:

  • Vicky Album
  • Kate Benton
  • John Borton (also Herts Welcomes Refugees)
  • Tara Hewes
  • Amie Shearer
  • Leila Ward
