MBC's support for the people of Ukraine
Since we launched our appeal to support those fleeing war in Ukraine, we have been blown away by everyone’s kindness, generosity and support. Our team delivered all the donated items we received from the incredible people and businesses of Sunderland, along with the goods our organisation bought for the appeal, to the Polish Centre in Newcastle, where we filled three vans and three cars worth of essential humanitarian aid that will help those seeking refuge.
We want to thank everybody who was involved in our appeal, whether it be through donating money or essential items, helping us transport the goods, volunteering to help us pack bags or by sharing our posts to ensure we reached even more people. Each one of you has made such a huge and positive difference to so many people.
We’d also like to acknowledge the astonishing work of the Polish Centre and the brilliant volunteers who are working flat out to ensure all donated items from around the North East are being sent to people in need of help at relief centres along the Ukraine-Poland border.
Thank you for your support.
