The Ukrainian Centre on Beckett Road will host the four hour event to officially greet people who have been forced to abandon their homes following Russia’s brutal invasion of the country more than a month ago.

The first few refugees have already arrived with many more expected to arrive in Doncaster in the coming weeks.

The ‘Stand With Ukraine’ event will take place on Sunday between noon and 4pm.
