Chris Lynn, member of the Rotary Club of Andover, said: “It’s a great thing for Andover to have an event to collect money for Ukraine.

“This is really important to Ukraine at the moment. There are a million people who have left their homes in Ukraine. Rotary, being an international organisation, will make sure the money goes to the right hands.

“We have received a licence from the Test Valley Borough Council to organise this event in the town centre.
