Mail Ukraine Refugee Appeal raises more than £2millionAn appeal fund set up by the Daily Mail and The Mail on Sunday to raise urgent funds for refugees in Ukraine has raised more than £2million in three days.
The Ukraine Refugee Appeal, launched on Sunday 27 March 2022, has seen more than £1m donated already on top of £500,000 pledged by the Daily Mail’s owner and a £250,000 donation from a British firm with business partners trapped in Ukraine. Peak Scientific pledged the astonishing sum as Dame Judi Dench and Sir Michael Palin became the latest big names to back the appeal.
The campaign has also been supported by the Prime Minister and Labour Leader and all donations received will be distributed to charities and aid organisations providing essential services to support the crisis.
Supporting the appeal with a generous donation, Dame Judi Dench urged the public to join in the efforts to offer assistance.
She said: ‘If, like me, you are appalled by the desperate plight of the people of Ukraine, I urge you to get behind this worthwhile appeal and donate as much or as little as you can.’
