Want to support the people of Ukraine? Here are some practical ways people in Harborough can help
A huge thank you to all who helped us to compile this list
Many of us have been left shocked and appalled at the brutal violence which Putin unleashed on the Ukrainian people.
Thanks to the help of people getting in touch with us, the Harborough Mail has been able to put together a list of organisations and groups which are actively helping to alleviate the suffering of Ukrainians.
Should you wish to learn more or make a donation, here are their details:
The Help Ukraine Emergency Appeal has been set up by Association of Ukrainians in Great Britain (AUGB).

The appeal has so far raised almost £70,000 across Britain and the organisation is working with charities in Ukraine to deliver much-needed medical supplies.
A spokesperson said: "We are working with accredited and registered Ukrainian charities to provide medicines, food and critical services to support the most vulnerable to overcome the consequences and trauma of war.
"Your donation will be used to fund immediate emergency and ongoing needs."
