As we watch the horrendous events unfold in Ukraine, our thoughts are with the brave people of Ukraine, those killed or injured during the violence and their families during this incredibly difficult time. As the most diverse borough in Hertfordshire, we know that lots of you feel strongly about the situation and will want to help those affected.
W3RT is working with Watford Borough Council, Goods for Good and Taylor Made former players club to raise money to transport goods donated in Watford to where they are most needed and can make a real difference to those impacted by war.
Thank you to everyone who has donated to the appeals page to raise funds to allow Goods for Good to transport the donations to the refugees on the Ukraine border. In total, over £7,000 was raised!
If you have goods that you can donate from the list below, you can drop them off at the Watford Leisure Centre (Central), Peace Prospect, WD17 3HA, Monday to Friday from 6.30am - 9.30 pm and 9am to 4pm Saturday and Sunday.
The message from charities working close to the Ukraine border is that many items are available locally and refugees need only specific items. Donations of other items such as toys and clothing are not needed at this point.
