We Need Your Support

28th Feb 2022

πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦ Collection point for donations to support the Ukrainian people πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦

πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦ We have all seen the news reports of what the Ukrainian people are facing against a Russian invasion. There is no doubt this will cause displacement across Ukraine, creating a refugee crisis that so often happens when war tears people apart.

At VPS we have a wonderful history of providing support to families and communities whenever they need it the most. We are once again asking, in conjunction with many other local schools and businesses, for your help and support.

We will be opening our doors, between 9am and 5pm until this Thursday to act as a collection centre for donations. We would ask the entire VPS community, if you can afford to do so, to help out by sending in donations with your child or dropping them off at the school office.

We would ask that if anyone can afford to donate that the following items are very much needed.

• Blankets, bedclothes, towels, sleeping bags ( clean)
• Dressings, bandages-factory packed
• Warm socks, underwear -male, female, child ( new)
• Toiletries ie soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, antiseptic hand gels/sprays etc
• Toilet roll and paper towels, nappies, sanitary towels, wet wipes
• Paper plates, cups, single-use cutlery etc
• Ready to eat canned food ( not requiring heating or further cooking)
• dry food ie fruits, nuts, crackers, cornflakes, rice crackers
• Coffee, tea, salt, sugar
• Bottled water, juices, and other beverages
+ anything else you feel may be helpful.

Collected items will be passed to Cllr Ryan McCready and transferred to Poland next week weekend.

Thanks in advance for your support.
