The ongoing conflict in Ukraine is devastating, and it is undeniably heart-breaking to hear about the Ukrainian civilians and refugees needing aid. In a bid to support them, some of our generous staff have contributed essential items to our local appeal hub, who will be taking donations for shipment this week. Among the donations were items such as toiletries, warm clothing, baby supplies, batteries and first aid kits.
Our teams in both Norwich and Ipswich got involved, resulting in several large boxes of donations being delivered to the appeal hub. We would like to give a special mention to Ipswich-based Wealth Manager Sue who went ‘above and beyond’ by washing, carefully folding, and labelling so many gorgeous warm items for children and men - as well as children’s shoes, boots and wellies, all in pristine condition - together with donating many other items. Also, to our Regulatory Compliance Officer and head of the CSR Committee, Kim, for locating the local appeal hub and co-ordinating this outreach effort.
