We regularly run aid collection days at community centres, schools and sports clubs around Newbury, Hungerford and Marlborough to enable the community to donate items.

Our team of dedicated volunteers spend the day sorting and packing all the donations, which are then delivered via our network of supporters to Ukraine. 

 

UPCOMING COLLECTION DAY - Our 9th aid collection day will be on Tuesday June 11th 2024, Chieveley Village Hall,  RG20 8TE

Until then please see the list of items below, that are needed now.

If you are able to donate any such items please get in touch and we will arrange to collect.  Please also consider making a cash donation to enable us to buy the most urgently needed items and get them to Ukraine ASAP.
