You may be wondering how to support the Ukrainian people in this dreadful time of crisis. There are a number of ways you can do this:
Here in Bollington, there is a collection point at Knowles Green (114 Wellington Road). They are looking for specific items such as blankets, towels, sanitary products, nappies and certain toiletries. These items will be taken to Bury Polish Club, where they will be taken to the Polish-Ukrainian border (see poster for more details).
There is also a collection point in Macclesfield. Details can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/Macclesfield-Ukrainian-aid-collection-point-101571875815519
Alternatively, organisations such as the British Red Cross, UNICEF and Doctors without Borders are working in the region and currently have appeals for donations on their websites.
We will keep you posted on our website and social media pages of any other initiatives in the local area as we become aware of them.
