HELP & SUPPORT UKRAINE In a written submission to the meeting on 7 June, it was reported that two members of the group had enjoyed a Ukrainian meal with one of our guests. They also noted that it was culturally inappropriate for Ukrainians to talk about their health. Need remains great, and so opportunity to donate clothing, bedding, children’s toys and wheelchairs (among other things) has reopened. Next meeting: Wednesday 5 July 2023, 7.00pm. ALL WELCOME. But unless there are pressing items for an agenda this meeting will be cancelled.
Olesia (our Ukraine resident in Ampleforth) asks if anyone could give her a lift to Easingwold between June 19th to July 20th so she can catch a bus to York University for her English course. She would need to leave at 7.30 am to get into Easingwold for 8 am each day. She is reliant on public transport from Ampleforth which doesn’t run at that time. Her mobile number is 07842252996.
