St Mary’s Church in Balcombe, West Sussex - Donation giving page for the Ukrainian Community being hosted in the Parish of Balcombe and surrounding areas.
The rapidly escalating conflict in Ukraine has been unbearable to witness as the Ukrainian people, both military and civilian, struggle to protect their country from the acts of aggression perpetrated by Russian forces since 24th February 2022. Watching the humanitarian disaster unfold in Ukraine has prompted many in the Parish of Balcombe, and its surrounding areas, to offer their homes as safe havens for refugees fleeing the conflict, plus vital support in many other ways. To this end, Balcombe Friends of Ukraine has been set up to coordinate these activities within the village.
As a registered charity, St Mary’s Church has set up a donations giving page specifically to help with this humanitarian cause. The proceeds you give will primarily go towards providing practical support for refugees to cover a range of expenses from food and clothes to travel costs, educational material, communication material and so on, as necessary.
The response so far from the local community has been remarkable, and we will do what we can to make a difference. For further information and updates, please refer to the St Mary’s Church Facebook page or the church’s website
