A LUTTERWORTH charity which supports Ukrainian refugees has received a donation of essential products from the Amazon centre in Rugby.

The Amazon Rugby team donated tinned food, toiletries, power banks, torches, and flasks to Lutterworth and Villages Foodbank, and with the help of

Lutterworth Community Transport, distributed the items to Ukrainian refugees living in the town.

Lutterworth Councillor Rosita Page helped arrange the support for Ukrainian families who have recently moved to Lutterworth.

Lutterworth and Villages Foodbank’s Project Manager Lucy Freema said: “We are grateful for the support from Amazon, Councillor Rosita Page, and Lutterworth Community Transport. The donated items are a great help for the refugees in our community.”

Gayner Coulson, Site Leader at Amazon Rugby, said: “Lutterworth and Villages Foodbank offers important support to people in the community and we’re pleased to support Councillor Page and the charities with this initiative.”

Amazon Rugby employee Sam Banfield added: “I’m glad we can help with initiatives like this one and support our neighbours when they need it.”

Lutterworth and Villages Foodbank provides emergency food and supplies for residents and refugees in financial crisis. Lutterworth Community Transport

provides a car-share scheme for disabled, vulnerable, elderly and rurally isolated people, and operates a fleet of wheelchair-accessible minibuses.
