Group Harvest Festival on the 16th October

Our collection of items will be for the people of Ukraine, we have a friend, Richard, who will be driving down to make a delivery before Christmas.

Let us help to make it a better Christmas for the people in Ukraine in need of our help

Ukraine Christmas Appeal

Since March a team of local people and organisations has been delivering food to Ukrainian communities in Sumy Oblast, eastern Ukraine.  So far they have made four deliveries, taking over 5 tonnes of food to a church in Gliwice, Poland, from where it is transported to another church in Rivne, western Ukraine, before being delivered to villages near Sumy.  Videos on the groups Facebook page show the food on the various stages of its journey, from collection points around Peterborough and the Deepings to Poland and on to Ukraine. 

The team are now hoping to make their largest delivery yet in time for Christmas or New Year.  They have set up more collection points than ever before and are asking people to make a small donation of the following items before Sunday 27 November



The food will then be delivered to Gliwice in early December, reaching the front line communities before Christmas.  You can find out more about the project on the Facebook Page and Just Giving site
