West Bridgford’s Solidarity March for Ukraine – more details ahead of Saturday’s event

A reminder that people from across Rushcliffe and Nottinghamshire are invited to march in solidarity and show support for those in Ukraine in a short town centre walk in West Bridgford.

In conjunction with Lutterell Hall, residents are invited to meet on Gordon Road in the town at 10.30am on Saturday 30 April, near the Test Match Pub and march on a route through Central Avenue.

At the end of the march near the Croquet Lawn, co-ordinator and Lutterell Hall Operations Manager Sofia Lesiuk will address those who attend together with members of the Ukrainian Association, Rushcliffe MP Ruth Edwards, Rushcliffe Borough Council Leader Cllr Simon Robinson and Nottingham City Council Leader Cllr David Mellen.

We spoke to Sofia ahead of the event, she said:

‘We’ll be holding our solidarity march and vigil on Saturday 30 April for the people of Ukraine.

‘Having met some of the families relocated to Rushcliffe I know it will mean so much to them for as many people as possible to get together.’

‘There is also a fundraising page for those who feel they would like to help.’

‘Anyone can come along and support.’

People of any age can join the march but all those set to attend are asked to email ukraine@lutterellhall.org.uk to enable organisers to prepare for measures around the event.

Those marching on the route are encouraged to bring along a sunflower to show further solidarity with the nation which can be laid on the Croquet Lawn whilst on the march route to remember all children lost in hospital attacks across Ukraine in recent times.

All those marching or observing the march, or who wish to support from afar will have the opportunity to donate what they wish with proceeds received by the Ukrainian community, responding to the most imminent need at the time.
