Where to drop off donations in Lincolnshire for Ukraine appeal

Lincolnshire is pulling together to support Ukraine

Businesses, organisations and individuals in Lincolnshire are appealing for donations in support of Ukraine during the invasion from Russia.

Russian troops began an invasion in Ukraine last week, causing deaths and devastation of peaceful communities. Thousands have fled the country after missiles rained down on their cities.

People in Lincoln turned out in their hundreds to show their support for people in Ukraine, under the backdrop of the cathedral, lit up in yellow and blue in a candlelit vigil on Sunday.

People continue to offer donations in the county, so below is a rolling list of places managing collections. If you would like to be added to the list please email [email protected].
