Amersham Town Football Club hosted a charity football game in support of Ukrainian refugees which raised more than £1,600.

The veteran’s charity game involved former Amersham players which took place at Spratleys Meadow  yesterday (Thursday April 28.)

A refugee family, Anna Bondarenko along with her husband Mark and two children Vlad and Evelina, who recently arrived in the UK  attended the game.

Residents of Amersham and Chesham came along and supported the game Anna started, at 7.30pm.

Anna expressed her gratitude to the British people for their love and generosity to her and her family.

She said: “Its very peaceful, people are kind and they are supporting us. They share their house; we are staying with this very nice family.”

11-year-old Evelina Tolner said: “It’s a bit tough but I still like life here, because its more fun and we go out more often and I get more exercise. Were not locked up in the house with the blinds down in the dark every day and we don’t worry about our power going out or bombs dropping close.”

The event was organised by former players, Steve White, and Mick Ward.

The final score was 3-0 to the Sunday league representative side with one being an own goal.
