Big-hearted residents and staff at Edwalton Manor Care Home have handed over generous donations to help those people devastated by the war in Ukraine.

The residents set up a collection point at the home throughout January and have now delivered the goods to the Aid for Ukraine campaign.

Every item will help those facing the biggest crisis of their lives.

Wellbeing and Lifestyle Coordinator Alice Kirkby said: “We have all found it incredibly distressing to see the news coverage which has shown the atrocities and horror or war that that Ukrainians have faced over the last year.

“Here at Edwalton we wanted to make some kind of difference which is why we have set up the collection point.”

Resident Valarie said: “Even if it is only something small, it’s important to help in any way we can.”

Valarie has been busy knitting scarves and hats in the Ukrainian colours in support of the appeal. And resident Chris, keen to support the appeal, went along to the donation centre to show her support.

The Aid for Ukraine collection point is open daily from 9am-5pm at 68 High Road, Beeston, Nottingham, NG9 2JQ.

People are invited to donate a range of goods including, first aid and healthcare products, non-perishable foods, hygiene products, tools, batteries, torches, and bedding sets.

The goods will be distributed by the Aid for Ukraine campaign.
