Colchester to Ukraine

Councillor Martin Leatherdale

"It’s humbling to support a community project of emergency humanitarian aid directly from our home town – I am proud. We aim to procure, produce, and deliver urgent aid to those In Ukraine and neighbouring countries as a matter of absolute urgency. This is a 100 per cent Colchester based community project supported by the World Food Aid charity and we will deliver every penny for penny, door to door."

Colchester Mayor Robert Davidson

"We should be proud to be part of such a caring community. Everyone I have met since the Ukrainian invasion is appalled by Russia’s indiscriminate attacks on the civilian population. Our community is keen to help and together we can help provide support and essential goods for the refugees and those remaining in Ukraine. Please help those struggling Ukrainians by donating to this worthwhile cause today."


"An important element of our family’s ethos is to assist those less fortunate than ourselves, and to this end we are proud and honoured to use our resources to support this humanitarian initiative. We are excited to see where we can take this project with the people of Colchester and really believe we can set a fantastic example of what can be achieved by one town when everyone is playing to their strengths."
