We're still collecting donations

On the 13th April 2022 we'd raised £1,317 with 32 supporters in 28 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

We have all watched the news unfold in disbelief and are horrified by the conflict in Ukraine.

Millions of children and their families are in danger as the conflict continues to escalate.

Whilst there are many efforts to help these refugees, the strain on neighbouring countries is immense. 

Many ordinary people like you and I are having to pull together to provide housing, food and support.

My name is Giles and as a committee member and trustee of Holme Farm Workshops and Gardens, I understand the importance of supporting those in need of help. 

Co founder Lee Ayres has been affected first-hand by this nightmare as his Ukrainian fiancé is currently stuck between borders with her elderly parents awaiting relocation.


Supplies are running short...

We are collaborating with charities and volunteers in the areas many families are fleeing to including Poland, Belgium and France. Where possible we intend on locally sourcing goods to donate to hotspots and distribution hubs.

Our goal is to provide everyday items for kids like gloves, socks, underwear, blankets, torches, water bottles, colouring books/pencils and vital medicines and vitamins. 

Pets need our support too...

We are trying to help displaced families with pets suffering from the war in Ukraine by providing cat and dog food, bedding, flea and worm treatments amongst other medical supplies.

You can only imagine the horrific stories from families who have travelled accross Europe with pets and who are now facing food and medical supply shortages!

  • Our aim is to work with local volunteers and charities in Poland and surrounding countries to distribute pet food and medical supplies.

Your donations will save lives...

So, we’re asking our community to donate what they can to help our aid effort which will provide life changing support for kids and pets in their hour of need.

This is an excellent way to support the suffering of children and animals as a result of this crisis in Ukraine.


We have already received a generous outpouring of donations and supplies from the following businesses and individuals:

Every donation, big or small, makes a difference and will go towards helping the people whose safety and wellbeing have been affected by this conflict, so please donate what you can.

*Make sure you enter the amount you want to pay next to the donate button. From £1 - £100

All funds received will go directly to the needs of refugee families with pets.

This of course will not solve the problems which the Ukrainians find themselves in but will go a long way to supporting the children of displaced families and their beloved pets.

Thank you for your willingness to give and let’s come together to support the huge refugee crisis continuing to unfold in Ukraine!

If anyone has contacts with Pet Food distributors or medical supplies please contact us ASAP.

We leave for Belgium on Wednesday 23rd March and will continue to spread the love for as long as possible.

Our second trip is planned for the 13th April so please keep the donations coming...
