Leamington Polish centre launches Easter egg appeal for Ukraine orphans

In his regular column for The Leamington Courier and Warwickshire World, David Harrop updates us about the ongoing campaign led by The Polish Centre in the town which has just launched an appeal for people to donate Easter eggs for orphaned youngsters in the war-torn country.Drop-off points have been set up throughout Leamington and the deadline for donations is March 31 with the lorry-load of donated Easter eggs to be taken to Ukraine leaving on April 3.

As the war in Ukraine ever tightens it’s grip, causing people to lose loved ones, jobs, homes and sometimes everything they own. One aspect of the war which often goes unnoticed is the plight of the children who’s lives are irreparably damaged by the catastrophe of war.

This tragedy of thousands of children has inspired us to reach out this Easter to let these children know they are not forgotten.

The Polish Centre has been at the heart of providing essential relief to Ukraine since the onset of war over a year ago.

Easter is a special time for families and communities to come together and celebrate. Unfortunately, not all children have the opportunity to enjoy the festivities and treats that come with this holiday.

That's where we can help!

We would like to invite you to participate in our chocolate Easter egg collection.

It's simple - all you need to do is purchase chocolate Easter eggs and drop them off at our designated collection points.

Our Main collection point is our "Aid for Ukraine shop" at The Royal Priors Shopping Centre in Leamington

The Morrisons in Leamington Community team has also set up a dedicated egg donation station.

We will be accepting Easter egg donations until March 31

The war in Ukraine is having a devastating impact on the lives of innocent children, they are being stripped of all the normal things children need to live a normal life.

Your contribution will make a significant impact on the lives of these children and we appreciate any support, no matter how small, you can offer.

Together, let’s make this Easter a little sweeter for the war orphans of Ukraine who need it most.

Many thanks for your generosity and support and for making a big difference to the young victims of this horrendous war.

We look forward to celebrating Easter with you in this meaningful way.
