Donations are continuing to flood in for a Staffordshire Moorlands humanitarian project which is aiding those affected by war-torn Ukraine.
The ‘Leek and Cheddleton Aid Support for Ukraine’ is continuing to collect donations at the Leek Town Council owned Bank House in St Edward Street, Leek.
The project is being run by a band of volunteers from within the community led by councillor Roy Molson.
One of the latest donations made has been from the Leek branch of Boots Opticians which presented a donation of supplies and cash.
Leek Town Crier Bill Lomas is also making weekly donations of cash which he is collecting during his regular visits to Leek town centre on Saturdays.
A spokesman for the support group said: “A heartfelt thank you also goes to Medequip for their generous donation of assistive technology equipment.
“This will be delivered to Kyiv this Friday, together with six palettes of medical equipment/supplies which is already stored in Macclesfield.”
The Leek project is continuing to collect on Wednesdays and Fridays between 10am and 1pm.
Items which are currently accepted include: baby food, equipment, nappies, clothes; medication, medical equipment, bandages, tourniquets; non perishable food (tins, pasta etc); drinking water; pet food and treats; and toiletries.
As well as being a drop-off point for the various donations, The Leek and Cheddleton Aid Support for Ukraine is currently carrying out a fundraising campaign to raise funds to purchase a number of ambulances to be driven out to help those affected by the Russian invasion in Ukraine.
Anyone wishing to donate can do so by going online to: www.crowdfunder.co.uk/p/leek-and-cheddleton-aid-support-for-ukraine-1.
Alternatively, pop into Bank House in St Edward Street during drop-off opening times.
