Thursday evening. Update: wow, thanks to everyone who has contributed. ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT. The first load, a full estate car’s worth is on its way to the Poland/ Ukraine border, via a fleet of lorries leaving Newmarket, so will hopefully arrive early next week.
Your Parish Council is working with a number of organisations looking to provide humanitarian aid to the people of Ukraine.
We will be providing a collection point within the Parish for urgently needed supplies for the millions of displaced civilians.
Whilst requirements will change over time and as the temperature rises, at this stage the most urgent items needed include:
- Insulated and waterproof sleeping mats/ sleeping bags
- Camping equipment
- Rucksacks, waterproof clothing
- Thermal hats/ gloves/ underwear (new please)
- Heat patches and body warmer pads
- Thermos flasks
- Solar powered cells, power banks and charging equipment
- Wind up items, including torches, radios
- Female sanitary products
- Baby supplies, including nappies, wipes, creams
- High energy bars
- First aid and medical equipment, including burns and antiseptic cream and gels, bandages, plasters, paracetamol, etc
