Ukraine Support

Bridgnorth supporting Ukraine with donations, residents and local Charities have put a huge effort in order to support the Ukrainian refugees migrating to Eastern European Countries during the invasion of the Russian Terrorist state in Ukraine.

Volunteers have come from Bridgnorth food bank, Bridgnorth Lions and the Women’s institute.

They have been collecting over 500 boxes of emergency supplies donated by the great Bridgnorth residents at the Castle Hall.

All the donations will be forwarded to the regional collection centre on Polish border.

Councillor Julia Buckley from Shropshire County and Bridgnorth Town Council said “Many residents had been asking what more they could do”.

She said: “We can be so proud of how Bridgnorth has responded with our usual strong community ethos.

Young children colouring Ukrainian flags for shop windows, the council lighting up the Town Hall in blue and yellow colours, and the herculean efforts around collection of emergency goods.

Writing in this week’s Bridgnorth Journal, Ludlow MP Philip Dunne said:

“In response to the humanitarian crisis, the measures put in place by the government so far are welcome.

The Ukrainian Family Scheme allows British nationals and people settled in the UK to bring a wide group of family members to the UK.

Providing a route for 200,000 Ukrainians fleeing disaster, war, and persecution to come here.

“But we must do more, and I know many constituents are keen to offer help or accommodation.

The government are bringing in links to facilitate this and we await details how such offers of help will be implemented,”

Other donations are welcome at the Red Cross in the Bridgnorth High street and also Budgens in Salop st.
