'The events in Ukraine are devastating and heartbreaking, and we're keen to do our bit, no matter how small, to offer support to those who are in desperate need of items. We stand in solidarity with the people of Ukraine. 

Our thoughts are with the extremely brave people who have stayed to oppose this illegal occupation, and their families and friends, many of whom have become refugees in the past few days.'
