Are you looking for a way to donate supplies to Ukrainian refugees in Europe? 

The Trafford Veterans Group, working with other armed forces charities, plans to deliver supplies to Ukrainian refugees in Poland. They are asking for donations of disposable nappies, wipes, baby talc, sanitary items, toiletries and baby formula, which may be delivered to the rear porch (car park entrance) of St Mary’s Church, Davyhulme, between 9am and 12 noon. Further details from Yvonne Mackereth on 07833 617 520.

Another option is available through the Barnabas Fund, a Christian charity which is calling for donated goods, specifically: tinned food (that can be opened without a can opener); cup-a-soup packets and energy bars; blankets, and good quality winter clothes, particularly coats. They have over 30 partner churches in the UK acting as collection hubs. The nearest to us are in Prestwich and Edgeley (Stockport): please click here to see a full list and find contact details. They are also looking for cash donations in aid of churches in Europe already doing everything they can to help.
