There has been a huge amount of support and concern from everyone, for the people of Ukraine and for the terrible situation for them and our colleagues, who have family, friends and loved ones in the country.
The ongoing conflict continues to inflict heavy humanitarian consequences on people’s lives and wellbeing and I believe that we are all unanimous in our desire to help in any way we can.
Therefore, we have made a £5,000.00 donation to the Red Cross Ukrainian appeal, Red Cross teams in Ukraine have distributed over 30,000 food and hygiene parcels and provided food, warm clothes, and other aid to around 8,000 people sheltering in metro stations. First aid training has also been delivered to over 2,000 people taking cover in metro stations and bomb shelters, so they have the skills to treat their loved ones if needed.
We have made the donation through John Lewis, who will match the donation, making a total amount of £10,000.00
Our thoughts are with everyone.
