LATEST COMMUNITY NEWS

When we prepare for fundraising events many Ukrainian volunteers are involved, but on our stall you can see only some of Ukraine Uk Unity volunteers as others are working hard behind the scenes.

Today, we would like to say thank you to amazing people, who always bake, handmake items, drive, decorate, donate and spend hours of their time to reach the fantastic results.

On 20 and 21 March we had an opportunity to take part in Tulip Festival at Dunsborough Park and small fundraising at St Mary's Ukrainian School Woking. Support of local community were great as a result we sold out all Ukrainian homemade bakes made by our volunteers.

Together we raised £ 4.096.63, all money will be spend on CAT tourniquets, which give an injured Ukrainian person 90% to survive. The war is not over in Ukraine, it just gone from front pages of the newspapers, news on TV, in reality the innocent Ukrainians killed every day. Remember, by buying goods on our stall, you keep someone in Ukraine alive.


Thank you , to all people, who supported us during our fundraising and all volunteers.

Irina Garmash-Creeger, a Ukrainian-born Woking resident says "the community spirit is alive" in Surrey.

With the highest number of arrivals in the UK, the county has welcomed 3,952 Ukrainians.

Along with Carolyn Drury-Burroughs, Irina has played a key role in supporting the "challenging" application process for the Homes for Ukraine scheme.

Irina said as people approached her and Carolyn for help with the process they created their own system to match hosts to guests.

She explained: "I could see that people will be easily matched if they knew each other, so the solution was very simple, we started doing interviews for people looking for sponsors and people wanting to be hosts."

The pair recognised the need to consider "the human factor".

After submitting 200 applications, Irina said they lost count. "We were helping anyone we could.

"In the beginning, it was 24/7 calls and interviews every single evening. We had to consider some people were underground and couldn't make a call."
