Support for Ukraine

The Chairman of St Andrews Parish Council, Councillor Vera Tomlinson and Members of the Parish Council all share the horror and sadness felt by people around the world at the current situation in Ukraine.

We are aware that residents may want to offer their support. . We encourage those wishing to help people impacted by the worsening humanitarian crisis in Ukraine to consider donating money via the Disasters Emergency Committee who bring together 15 leading UK aid charities to raise funds quickly and efficiently at times of crisis overseas.

The UK Government will match donations from the public pound-for-pound up to £25 million, meaning your support will go even further.

DEC charities are in Ukraine and neighbouring countries meeting the needs of all refugees and displaced people:

£30 could provide essential hygiene supplies for three people for one month

£50 could provide blankets for four families

£100 could provide emergency food for two families for one month

St Andrews Parish Council will also be showing solidarity by planting sunflowers, the country's national flower, at Redhouse Community Centre.

Our thoughts remain firmly with Ukraine.
