A Dunblane based group is organising a shipment of much needed aid to refugees fleeing the war in Ukraine.
Over 2 million refugees, mainly women and children, have made the journey to Poland, often in freezing conditions, taking with them only what they can carry. Supplies at the border are running terribly low and refugees are arriving mentally, emotionally and physically shattered. Donated aid will go by HGV next week direct to a refugee receiving centre on the Polish Ukrainian border.
We have been in regular contact with the centre and the items they desperately need are:
Tinned food, particularly tinned meat and tinned fruit
Sweets for the children
Blankets (new only)
***Although thie collection event has passed, you can still donate towards shipment costs on their gofundme page.***
If you are able to donate any of these items, you can bring them along to Dunblane Scout Hall, 2 Ochlochy Park, Dunblane FK15 0DU between 12:30 and 16:30 on Sunday, 20 March.
Thanks in advance for your support.
