With the ongoing invasion of Ukraine it is hard to know exactly what to do.

One thing that we can do is support families fleeing the country in a practical way.

Here are two local options for showing support:

  • Sitara Morgan Boutique, West St, Portadown: are collecting donations at their shop to be sent to Poland asap, to support refugees fleeing from Ukraine. Items needed are pain killers, bandages, plasters, toiletries, warm clothing for children, blankets, bedding, towels, ready to eat food, tea, coffee, sugar and dried food
  • Hope Charity Shop, 99 Union St, Lurgan: have been working directly with people in southern Ukraine for 24 years. They are currently accepting financial donations and donations of furniture and clothing which will be sold to raise funds for ongoing support of the people there. Contact 028 3834 5928.
