Barney’s Ukraine Appeal

28 Mar 2022

We are ever so grateful for our community’s generosity, compassion and support of our relief efforts in respect of the ongoing crisis in Ukraine.

Since the start of our campaign, the volume of donations and care packages received to support those impacted by the conflicts has overwhelmed us.

We have since been advised that we are not to accept food products as donations, as these items require certain paperwork to cross borders. The food items that have been supplied so far have been distributed to local food banks.

Please see below a full list of acceptable items.

As ever, many thanks for your support throughout our continuous appeal – it is greatly appreciated, Barney.
