Alex hosted a ‘Welcome to Cheltenham’ tea party for Ukrainians in Cheltenham.
The event - which was attended by over 70 Ukrainians and their host families - enabled families to meet each other and to help build friendships and support networks.
Alex has already helped over 50 people to get visas to come to the UK. Writing on Facebook, Alex said:
"It was a privilege today to host a tea party for Ukrainians in Cheltenham and their host families. I heard moving stories of pain and loss of course, but there was also a palpable sense of hope for the future. Here in Cheltenham, we continue to stand by the Ukrainian people."
(The event was put on at no cost to the taxpayer, and Alex is grateful to local business Bence Builders Merchants for their kind contribution).
