Collections for Ukraineby Gary Wicker 27th March 2022
On Saturday 26th March, Networkfour held a donations day for Ukraine. This was fabulously coordinated by our new Life & Sole Support worker Lisa Plowman and the amazing support from Debbie and the staff of Morrisons Stirchley and students from University of Birmingham.
We arranged a collection point gathering kids shoes, adult & children's thermal clothing, medicines, bandages and a range of toiletries and non perishable items. We saw a remarkable response from our wonderful, local community and will be sending these donations through to an amazing emergency relief charity called CORE who are currently setting up a relief centre and medical provision on the ground in Poland some 4 miles from the border on Ukraine.
This will go towards caring for the currently 1.3 million displaced refugees fleeing war torn areas.
