CAN YOU HELP?
Jane Hemmings has made an appeal on Bridlington Facebook Groups for donations to help the people of Ukraine 🇺🇦. Her post is as follows:
“Hi everyone. This is a plea for some help.
I really want to help the people of Ukraine in any way I can.
If anyone is interested with helping me – I am putting together boxes full of essentials which are going to be shipped to Poland for the refugees coming from Ukraine.
If anybody is able to help with donating items or sourcing any essential items or can just help in anyway – I’m more than happy to collect these items or they can be dropped off at my address or at the TOP 20 CAFE.
I have a list of what is needed for men, women, children and pets.
If anyone can help, please let me know.
This email will go directly to me if you would like to contact me!

If you are unsure or unable to collect items, you can always make a donation. Large or small, it will enable us to purchase these essential items.”
