Farsley restauranteur overwhelmed by Ukraine donations

The owner of a Farsley restaurant says he has been inundated by people’s donations towards an appeal to help the people of the Ukraine.

Zulfi Hussain owns Deeva Restaurant in Farsley Town Street, and wanted to do something to help people suffering due to the Russian invasion.

He told West Leeds Dispatch that the response to his appeal for donations had been ‘amazing’, and added:

“It’s been a great community effort, we’ve had people dropping off donations and local companies like Hainsworth’s dropping off blankets. We’ve had tonnes of stuff.

“The first set of donations have gone over to Halifax and will depart tomorrow (Thursday) to reach the people who need them.

“I’d like to thank everyone for all your continued generosity and donations. Priority items now are medical supplies, first aid kits, baby formula, nappies, wipes, female products, and sleeping bags. We don’t need any more clothes for now please.

“We are open every day from 5pm. People are welcome to call in and help if they wish, and stay for a cup of tea and a chat.”

Zulfi, from Calverley, said Deeva has a good reputation for supporting good causes, and that through his Global Promise initiative, he’s helped raise over £7 million since an initial appeal to support tsunami victims in 2004.
