Countryfile "A Rural Welcome" 10 July 2022: Sunday on BBC One 11

Matt Baker and Margherita Taylor are in the New Forest in Hampshire, as the community comes together to help Ukrainian refugees. Since Russia invaded Ukraine in February, more than 50,000 people have arrived in the UK, and rural communities across the country are giving them a warm welcome. Margherita meets a mother and daughter who have fled the war and found sanctuary in the Hampshire countryside, while Matt lends a hand to a group of volunteers collecting and packing Humanitarian Aid to send to Ukraine. Tom Heap spends time with Ukrainian farm workers who have escaped the war and are providing a vital rural workforce for the UK, and Adam Henson chats to a farmer in Ukraine and finds out what impact the war is having on agriculture there.
