Ukraine Appeal – Ukraine week

Jersey has stood shoulder-to-shoulder with the people of Ukraine since the invasion began

on 24th of February. Starting with a candlelit vigil in Royal Square, we have raised and

distributed almost £2.3m of assistance, including essential medical supplies, ballistic vests

and helmets for front-line medics, incubators for premature babies, and mine-clearance

training courses for Ukrainian women. The Island has also collected and sent 15 lorry-loads

of donations and supplied 200 surplus oxygen concentrators from Jersey’s hospital.

The Parish are proud to have been a part of this acting as a ‘drop off’ point for Islanders donations, our staff also donated £260 worth of sleeping bags and toiletries and as our late Connétable, Sadie, wished, all the proceeds from the sale of the Parish ‘Platinum Jubilee’ pin badges, a total of £567.42, was donated to the Bailiffs Ukraine fund.

Now, a small team, together with the Bailiff, JOA and JSBS are planning a week of fund-raising events during the week 21st August to 27th August, this is to coincide with Ukraine’s national Day on 24th August.
