After 16:45, only supporters with tickets to our match with Worcester Warriors in the Premiership Rugby Cup will be able to donate. Following the collection, a group of Bath players will drive the vans to a Red Cross centre in Poland to distribute the goods to Ukrainian refugees in need.

One of those making the trip 2,000-plus mile round trip is forward Tom Ellis. He said: “We are asking all Bath supporters to join us in bringing sleeping bags, blankets, adults and children’s clothing and toys to the Rec on Wednesday.

“Nine of us will then drive the donations to Poland, to the people who need them most. Every single item will make a difference to somebody.”

A Bath statement added: “People are encouraged to bag their donations separately so they can be distributed into the correct van. Thank you in advance for your support and donations.”
