Ways you can help the Ukraine crisis as an individual and as a business

Stacey Selway

It’s not uncommon for supermarkets within the UK to host donation collection points as you’re leaving the supermarket. But how many of us have made this a habit everytime we shop to add something in the charity collection basket?

What can you do to help?

We need to make donations a habit, consistency is vital in creating a steady flow of donations. Here’s an idea of what you can supply;

  • Non-perishable food e.g. tins, pasta, rice, sugar etc
  • Toiletries and sanitary products
  • Baby supplies e.g. nappies, wipes etc
  • Medical supplies e g paracetamol, bandages etc
  • Sleeping bags, new duvets, pillows, blankets

How can we help as a Business?

If there's space in your workplace to make yourself a donations drop off point this will be a great way to support Ukraine. Especially if you can run a campaign in your own place, encouraging your team and visitors to bring in weekly donations. 

There’s plenty of collection points for you to take your items to, or drop them directly

Into London, call 023 9237 5377 for the MP's office or email penny.mordaunt.mp@parliament.uk to arrange a drop off.
