Donation to Ukranian Relief

We have donated €1,010.70 to the official Portuguese fund for Ukranian war relief. This came about from various activities during the latter part of the year, including individual donations, raffles at various events and fines for wrong bias etc!
A really nice thank you was received

Dear Alan, Please accept our sincere gratitude for your donation of 1010 €. A generous contribution of yours and the Committee is a true Christmas gift for the Ukrainian families and their children.  Because of you, it will be possible for the refugee families to keep the babies warm and clean, to have necessary nutrition and to safely celebrate Christmas.Your generosity gives the Ukrainians necessary support and confidence in people around.Have a joyous and blessed Christmas!

Sincerely, Oleksandra Tynkalyuk, President, Associação de Apoio à Comunidade Ucraniana em Portugal
