Pontypool RFC to donate ticket and programme sales to DEC Ukraine appeal

Thursday 10th March 2022

Following the devastating events unfolding in Ukraine, Pontypool RFC can today announce that the club will donate all match ticket and programme sales from Saturday’s WRU National Championship fixture versus Trebanos RFC to the Disasters Emergency Committee’s Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.

The Disasters Emergency Committee is made up of 15 member charities who are experts in humanitarian aid and specialise in different areas of disaster response. They come together to speak in one voice and make fundraising more efficient when it launches an appeal.

Disasters Emergency Committee charities are in Ukraine and neighbouring countries meeting the needs of all refugees and displaced people:

  • £30 could provide essential hygiene supplies for three people for one month
  • £50 could provide blankets for four families
  • £100 could provide emergency food for two families for one month

Tickets for Saturday’s fixture versus Trebanos RFC cost £7 for standard admission and £5 for concessions. However, Pontypool RFC is requesting that supporters round their donation up to £10 in order to raise as much money as possible for such a worthy cause.

If you would like to donate directly to the Disasters Emergency Committee’s Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal, please visit: https://donation.dec.org.uk/ukraine-humanitarian-appeal.

Thank you for your support and let’s #StandWithUkraine by packing out Pontypool Park this weekend.
