All of us cannot help but be affected by the plight of the Ukrainian people at this time.
We believe it is important to 'do our bit' and to this end we wish to offer you some practical ways to help.
Colin Tinsley, a local youth worker, who appeared on television this week is currently working in the refugee camps in Poland where many Ukrainians have fled.
There are two practical options for you should you wish to help:
- Donations of Supplies
- Monetary donations
Should you wish to donate supplies, please see below a list of local drop off points for Saturday morning (5 March) between 10am and 11am:
Tesco Lurgan car park
Moira Demesne car park
Donaghcloney Orange Hall
Waringstown - Hyways-Byways-Missions, 129 Banbridge Road
Banbridge Baptist Church car park
If you wish to make a monetary donation you may do so via the following link:
Also, we intend this year on Red Nose Day (Friday 18 March) to accept donations to help towards the Ukraine Aid Appeal. If you wish to donate you may send a sealed envelope into school or donate via Eduspot. All proceeds will go directly to a local charity supporting the Ukrainian refugees. Further details will follow next week.
Thank you to all our parents in anticipation!
