Donations are being accepted in main reception at the Mazuma Stadium from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, which will then be collected by co-chairman Rod Taylor, before being transported to Ukraine.

Unfortunately they will not be taking donations on a matchday.

To aid the collection process and to avoid any wastage only items on the list of essentials should be donated.
