Support for Ukraine

At the meeting of the parish council held on 9 March, the Chairman made the following statement, supported by the council:

Whilst we, as a Council, have not tabled a formal motion, I would like to suggest that we state that we stand with the people of Ukraine and wish for the end of bloodshed of innocent people, in Ukraine and around the world.

We encourage anyone wishing to help provide support for those displaced by this conflict to donate to the Disasters Emergency Committee, the Red Cross, or any other official charity providing direct support.

Also at the meeting, Leader of Cornwall Council, Cllr Linda Taylor, spoke of the Ukranian refugee crises, advising that Cornwall Council had started preparations to be able to support refugee settlement and that Cornwall Council had already been inundated with offers of accommodation. Cornwall Council’s website has a page ‘Support for Ukraine’ which sets out links to charities providing support to people fleeing the war: Support for the people of Ukraine – Cornwall Council
