As we know all too well, i this country we are especially generous with our charity donations and were recently named as one of the most charitable in the world. One only needs to look at the Late Late Toy Show last year to see the incredible lengths Irish people will got to help others.

With that in mind, this week’s Late Late Show is set to be a fundraising special in partnership with the Irish Red Cross. With the news very much be focused on the war in Ukraine right now, the show will be appealing for viewers to donate so that they can help to raise vital funds for humanitarian assistance. This will help those directly impacted by the conflict in Ukraine.

As well as this, Ryan will be chatting to Ukrainians living here in Ireland as they speak about loved ones who are still in Ukraine at the moment.
