At yesterday’s Finance and Governance Committee meeting, the Town Council agreed to donate £10,000 to the Disaster Emergency Committee Ukrainian Aid appeal which will be match funded by central Government.  DEC charities and their local partners are in Ukraine and in neighbouring countries providing food, water, shelter and medical assistance.

The Council agreed the donation on behalf of the people of Lowestoft to support what people in the town felt was such an important issue.  This is not an exclusive grant and if there was a requirement to support refugees coming into Suffolk, the Council will again consider both the international and local situation.
