We have been helping to collect things that are most urgently needed by the people of Ukraine, by partnering with Helfen Sie helfen.
Many thanks to everybody who has donated goods so far – This week, we have sorted, packed, and delivered fourteen boxes to Helfen Sie helfen, who will send them onwards to where they are most needed.
We will continue to collect donations after the Sunday church services.
Donations can also be dropped off at the community centre this Wednesday (23.3) between 09:00 – 14:00.
Further mid-week drop-off dates will be confirmed in due course.
Please only bring items from the following list*
- Adults’ and children’s NEW socks and underwear only
- Baby clothes (up to 86cm)
- Blankets (warm blankets of any kind, but no duvets, duvet covers or pillows)
- Hand, face, and bath towels
- Soaps (any soap, shower gels and shampoo, of any size)
- Plasters, wound cream, disinfectant, masks
- Baby wipes
- Any women’s sanitary products
- Toothbrushes & Toothpaste
- Babies’ feeding bottles
- Babies’ dummies
- New coloured pencils, erasers, pencil sharpeners and colouring books
* Remember that these things are being sent with love to people in desperate circumstances. Please ensure that your donations reflect the same care. We can only send on items of excellent quality. If the items you bring don’t meet these standards, the costs of disposing them will reduce the amount of monetary support that we can pass on to Helfen Sie Helfen.
If you would like to give money towards this project, your donations will help with the transportation costs, for which Helfen Sie helfen ask for 3chf per box. Further details can be found by clicking here to go the the relevant page on our website.
