A VIGIL in solidarity with the Ukrainian people was held in Bradford Cathedral in West Yorkshire last night.
Faith groups and members of Bradford’s Ukrainian heritage community were among those attending the vigil which followed an appeal from the city’s Anglican Bishop Toby Howarth.
He said that Bradford would warmly welcome refugees from the conflict.
“There are a lot of people of Ukrainian heritage in Bradford, a lot of them came here as refugees, fleeing the Nazis and the appalling things they did,” he said.
“Bradford and Ukraine have strong links, so this would be an obvious place for refugees to now come to, and we want to be ready for that, as we are a city of sanctuary.
“Bradford has an amazing history of welcoming refugees and celebrating diversity.”
Bradford City councillor Abdul Jabar said: “We will do everything we can to help Ukraine and those Ukrainians fleeing the fighting that is taking place.”
