Ukraine Appeal Total Passes £750,000

Sandpiper donated £15,700 from its shops around Jersey.

More than £100,000 has been donated to Jersey's Ukraine Appeal by a local family.

They wish to remain anonymous, but Jersey Side By Side - which organised the collection - says they hope publicising the donation will encourage others to give generously if they are able to.

It brings the total amount raised by the Bailiff's Appeal to more than £750,000.

Michel Le Troquer, the chairman of the charity, tells Channel 103 that money is already being spent where it's needed most:

"The money isn't being stored up. It's actually being sent to charities on the ground in Ukraine as and when the Bailiff's Appeal is receiving it.

This £100,000 cheque is going to make a big, big difference so thank you so much to the donor."

Also this week, the Sandpiper donated £15,700 to the appeal. It was collected from its shops around Jersey.

Every donation to Jersey Side By Side of £50 or more is eligible for tax relief, meaning every £1 donated by islanders can be worth £1.25 to the appeal. That has meant an extra £60,000 has been raised so far.
