Bath Rugby asking for donations to deliver to Ukrainian refugees in need

28 March 2022

Bath Rugby is asking for donations to be delivered to those affected by the war in Ukraine.

From midday until 16:45 on Wednesday 30 March at the Rec, three vans will be positioned by the William Street Gate entrance car park with the club encouraging donations of (van 1) sleeping bags and blankets, (van 2) adult clothing, (van 3) children’s clothing and toys.

After 16:45, only supporters with tickets to our match with Worcester Warriors in the Premiership Rugby Cup will be able to donate.

Following the collection, a group of Bath Rugby players will drive the vans to a Red Cross Centre in Poland to distribute the goods to Ukrainian refugees in need. 

One of those making the trip 2,000-plus mile round trip is Blue, Black and White forward Tom Ellis.

He said: “We are asking all Bath supporters to join us in bringing sleeping bags, blankets, adults and children’s clothing and toys to the Rec on Wednesday.

“Nine of us will then drive the donations to Poland, to the people who need them most. Every single item will make a difference to somebody.”

People are encouraged to bag their donations separately so they can be distributed into the correct van. 

Thank you in advance for your support and donations.
