Thank you donation angels! You know who you are, I wish I knew too but please know your generosity arriving in our Easter Compton porch each week is very much appreciated (follow the flag, we're opposite The Fox in Easter Compton).
It's not all the very much needed pasta & rice.... Just in time for the Jubilee a very special Percy Pig Shopping bag brim full of extra yummy donations from M&S was dropped in our porch, thank you, we made sure to send this as a Queen's Jubilee hamper style donation box. We know this will touch many hearts I'll keep a look out for the Percy Pig shopping bag photos arriving in Ukraine. It would be so nice to see them arrive by photo if possible!
Rob & I are now shift leaders at 'From Bristol With Love For Ukraine' HMRC charity and we take all your donations to our base of the Bristol International Centre For Ukraine each week. Here is where donations sorted, packed & transported! We've recently sent another 3 van loads, our next delivery leaves in 2 weeks, transported by volunteers just like me & Rob. Look out for your shopping bags, we pack them as they're helpful but it's also nice for the recipient to receive our British bags to see who is thinking of them from afar! Maybe you can spot your bag? Here are some of the people you are helping to reach in the Ukraine, those who just can't leave.... These photos are shared by The Ukraine cross border agency - http://www.euroregionagency.od.ua/
If your work / company wants to arrange your own collection please go for it, you can drop donations with me in Easter Compton or at the FBWLFU headquarters in Bedminster at the Bristol International Centre For Ukraine.
Please keep donating, we'll keep packing & transporting for as long as donations come in! There's flags in my porch, as you donate please help yourself to one to keep sharing the kindness!
A couple of weeks ago at FBWLFU we even sent on the 3000th box to Ukraine! Lord Mayor & Lady Mayoress came to support along to celebrate! Here you see the box in Bristol and arriving with our Ukraine Officials in Galati, Romania near the Ukraine border!
It is still so great to see the journey of the generators we transported with your help arriving at hospitals in the Ukraine. These 9 generators we transported to the border were donated by Rodda's Cornish Clotted Cream are going to touch so many lives!
Please keep donating, we'll keep sending what we receive into the Ukraine via From Bristol With Love for those who remain. Donate at my Easter Compton porch opposite The Fox or at From Bristol With Love For Ukraine in Bedminster.
Lastly, if you know of any Ukraine refugees who may like to come to my yoga classes in Easter Compton please put them in touch, they can come along for free, speaking English isn't required. It's good for the mind & body and perhaps a nice way to meet others in our caring communities. Jade & Rob xxx
