He had wanted to convert an annex in his home for refugees but that would take two years to achieve.
''I wanted to help because it was absolutely devastating watching millions of people fleeing - the bombs going off.''
The new home is open to Maria and her three kids who are aged 10, 12 and 14 who will be in the UK in coming weeks. Other refugees coming in from Ukraine are also expected to take shelter in the home for free.
Maria who is still in Western Ukraine works in anaesthetics at a Ukrainian hospital.
