Urgent Appeal: Donate Items to Help Ukraine
By Surbiton HC
One of our members is arranging a collection of medical and other supplies for Ukraine.
Please see the message below from Olena. If you can donate any of the items on the list or sleeping bags and thermal clothing, please bring these along to the donation point we have set up in the marquee at SHC. We will be helping Olena and her husband to collect donations until Thursday 10th March.
Any packing boxes / crates to gather the donations would also be gratefully received.
Olena will also accept donations to her JUSTGIVING page
Firstly, let me introduce myself.
My name is Olena Fedyna and my son is a member of the SHC U12 team. My husband and I are originally from Ukraine.
Please excuse my rather direct approach, but in the light of recent military events in Ukraine, I am appealing to you for help. Being British citizens for many years, but having Ukrainian heritage, my husband and I strongly feel that it is our duty to assist our fellow Ukrainians. So far, I have been involved with collections for the Ukrainian women and children that were fleeing Ukraine to neighbouring countries.
Recently my husband, Roman Fedyna, has been in touch with the Lviv regional state administration and they are asking, if not begging, for help. So now Roman will be purchasing a pickup truck to drive to Polish/Ukrainian border Friday 11th March himself to deliver the specific items they have asked for the men that are on the frontline. Therefore, I will be collecting medical supplies (please see the list below), thermal clothing for men and sleeping bags to fill up the truck.
If you could donate any of the above, we would deeply appreciate that gesture. And if you have any questions please either contact me on my mobile 07717885578 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you in advance for your help with this matter.
