The centre in Beckett Road has been at the centre of Doncaster’s aid efforts for those fleeing the war in Ukraine, with thousands of items of food, clothing and other essential items donated since Russia’s invasion of the country last year.
The centre has recently revamped its kitchens, with mayor Ros Jones officially declaring the new unit open earlier this month.
