The British Ironwork Centre, near Oswestry, has been collecting aid for the country since the Russia conflict began.

It says that with winter now hitting Ukraine, and Russia attacking the infrastructure - cutting off power to millions of people - it is vital to get more aid to those affected.

Centre chairman Clive Knowles said it had set up a scheme to reward those taking donations to the visitor attraction, just off the A5 south of Oswestry.

"We desperately need blankets, first aid kits, sleeping bags, tents, warm clothing, nappies waterproofs and wheelchairs," he said.

To say thank you there will be a treat in return, from a coffee for a blanket, to soup and a roll for first aid kits or waterproofs.

A toastie and hot drink will be given to anyone donating a tent, while a wheelchair donation will be rewarded with a cream tea.

"We only accept good quality and usable donations," Clive said.
