Ukraine invasion: Britons donate more than £100m to help Ukrainian refugees through DEC appeal
Sky News says Britons have donated more than £100m to provide aid to Ukrainians fleeing the war after an appeal was launched by the UK Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC).
The total includes “generous” donations from the Queen, the Prince of Wales and the Duke of Cambridge, as well as hundreds of thousands of members of the public.
The Ukraine appeal was set up on Thursday by the DEC, which brings together 15 leading UK aid charities at times of crisis overseas.
The amount raised is equivalent to more than £1m per hour.
