Broxtowe Ukraine Appeal


Broxtowe Borough Council has launched an Appeal for residents who wish to support the Humanitarian Aid Work taking place in Ukraine and Poland.

At a recent Full Council meeting, the Mayor of Broxtowe, Councillor Richard MacRae said, on behalf of the Council:

“This Council stands with the people of Ukraine and their friends and relatives living in the Borough and beyond. This is an unprovoked attack on a sovereign nation. The people that will suffer the most will be civilians on both sides.''

Broxtowe is in friendship with the town of Myszkow, Poland who are currently experiencing an influx of refugees, due to being close to the Ukrainian border. This appeal will allow the people of Broxtowe to offer their support.

If you would like to make a donation, no matter how big or small, you can do so through the official JustGiving page.

If you aren't able to make a donation but would like to help in some way, visit our Support For Ukraine webpage as we are also collecting much needed items that can be dropped off at our main Council Offices in Beeston.

New Accommodation For Ex Service Personnel In Stapleford

Guests in front of Tom Martin House

Mayor of the Borough of Broxtowe, Councillor Richard MacRae officially opened Tom Martin House on Thursday 5th May, the recently completed construction of five one bedroom flats in Stapleford.

The flats were built by local firm Vaughandale Construction Limited and will be let to ex service personnel on the Council’s housing register. This is part of the on-going work to meet the Council’s commitment to build 230 new social homes over the next 10 years.

Councillor MacRae said, “These properties are important to support the mental health and wellbeing of ex service personnel. It’s the sacrifices of these people that gives us the freedoms we have today. They’ve looked after us for years, so we’ve got to do our bit to look after them.’’
