Mr Dumas said: “Hampshire has been at the forefront of looking after many of these displaced families who, having been with their hosts for a year or more, now wish to move on and find their own accommodation and of course this costs money.

“Several friends kindly helped with the organisation and setting up of the show and the town hall was the ideal venue for such an event. The amazing sum of just over £6,000 was raised and this will be donated to some of the local Ukrainian support groups.”
