Beverley charity Jacob’s Well has launched an appeal to help Ukrainian refugees fleeing from the conflict with Russia. They will be working with partner charity Ora International, based in Moldova, which has been distributing medical and humanitarian aid throughout the country for over 20 years, and has received help from Jacob’s Well over this time, including several visits from the Beverley charity’s medical directors. 

Jacob’s Well CEO John Beynon told Beverley FM: “At the moment, we are appealing for donations of money (not clothes or food), which can be sent quickly and used to buy all the local supplies that are urgently needed. We will not take any administration fee – all the money will be given direct to Ora and will be kept in a special designated fund to help the refugees. 

Donations can be made through the Jacob’s Well website or at the charity’s shops or the office on Swinemoor Lane, Beverley. 

A 19-year-old moped rider was targeted by two men in Deer Park Way, off Minster Way, Beverley, who threatened him with a knife before making off with the victim’s Yamaha moped (registration number YG14 WZR) and two rings he was wearing. The incident happened on Sunday afternoon, around 4.50pm.

One attacker is described as white, around 6ft tall in his late teens, wearing a black baseball cap, black tracksuit and a green and red Gucci bag. The second man is described as being black, around 5ft 7ins tall, in his late teens wearing a brown jacket, black bottoms and a black baseball cap.

And finally, a A £450,000 road resurfacing scheme has got underway in Dunswell Lane and is expected to take five weeks to complete. It will mean the road will be closed for through traffic with diversions in place.
