04 Mar Locals stepping up in support of the Ukrainian people
Our local shops, businesses and people supporting Ukraine
Our locals stepped up as the humanitarian crisis on the Ukrainian/Poland border began to unfold.
Local shops, at the heart of our communitie acted as community collection points. LuLu Loves Home in Stubbington, Robin’s Nest Emporium in Fareham, Locks Heath Shopping Village and Ocean Art at Warsash, have all been collecting donations from local people. The Civic Offices also played their part.
Thank you everyone who offered their support.
These donations are now being despatched through the Polish Club of Southampton and local charity, Jacob’s Well, and we believe these local collection points are now closed.
You can offer your support by donating through the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) and it’s 15 leading aid charities.
Many charities have launched their own appeals, so you may prefer to donate through them instead. The Government has issued some guidelines to ensure your money is safe, these can be found here.
