The war in Ukraine is devastating. It is impacting our community with those who have friends or loved ones in Ukraine and Russia, and is traumatic for those who have had similar experiences of devastation and war.It feels helpless but as a community we can come together to raise awareness and funds for the humanitarian disaster that is unfolding. We will hold an act of solidarity and remembrance with a two-minute silence and the Ukrainian national anthem at the start of the event.
Please donate to the appeal, join us on Saturday and keep the people of Ukraine and Russia in your thoughts and prayers over the next days and weeks.Thank you.
