GEORGIAN Social Relief Fund patron Martin Bell was the speaker at the charity’s meeting in Antrobus on Saturday.
The Mid Cheshire society was formed in 1999 to provide relief to the poor in former Soviet state.
Chairman John Corlett says the charity’s work is “even more important” following the Russian army’s incursion into its sovereign territory.
“More people than ever need our help since the Russian incursion across Georgia’s borders,” says Mr Corlett.
He urges anyone who would like to become involved in the charity’s work to contact him at Pole End House in Knutsford Road, Antrobus, CW9 6JN, telephone 01606 892341 or e-mail email@example.com.
Mr Bell talked about his life, and members also heard from Darren Woodcock, who had been employed in the British Embassy in Tbilisi and who spoke on the history and environment of Georgia.
“It was a very successful evening with mainly Georgian food and enjoyed by all present,” said Mr Corlett.
