- The government revealed Tuesday morning almost 90,000 people have now registered an interest in hosting
- It said said that the number as of this morning had skyrocketed to 88,712, up from 44,000 on Monday evening
- But the actual figure for those wanting to help out is likely much higher – with many posting their own adverts
- Many took to social media due to Homes For Ukraine needing Britons to name a Ukrainian they wish to house
A Ukrainian family who escaped Vladimir Putin’s bombs could become the first to be rehoused in Britain after being offered a place at a six-bedroom mansion in Yorkshire.
Lillia and Vitalii Kucher, along with their daughters Victoria, 14, and Ilona, six, have sorted accommodation at Sabrina and Tony O’Brien’s home in Driffield near Hull.
They are looking to get to the UK in the next week after fleeing to Moldova when Russia invaded their homeland last month.
It comes as Britain’s Homes For Ukraine scheme doubled overnight as tens of thousands more came forward to offer their support to those trying to escape the carnage in eastern Europe.
