We want to create an opportunity for all of our staff and pupils to stand together with the people of Ukraine to unite for peace and hope on Wednesday 23 March.

The OAT National Student Voice discussed a variety of ways to show support and solidarity with those affected by the current conflict, however the youth social activity of choice was to raise instant cash that can be given to charities working with those families who are displaced.

The justification behind our pupils opting to raise cash is due to a recent update from The British Red Cross that states:

" We know that people up and down the UK have been incredibly generous. While some local charities have been able to get those donated items to border countries, there has been such a huge response from right across Europe, it is difficult to use all the things that have been donated and get them to the right place.

" Cash donations are by far the quickest, safest, and most direct way to help. A cash donation means we can help with whatever is needed, source things locally, and transport items quickly. It also means volunteers can concentrate on the response, rather than sorting and transporting donations." - The British Red Cross, March 2022.

The pupils' charity of choice to make our cash donations to is the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal. There were so many wonderful charities discussed, however, this seemed the best option as the DEC brings 15 leading UK aid charities together in times of crisis. The DEC exists to raise funds quickly and efficiently at times of crisis.

It would be truly wonderful to see our 43 academies, OAT Head Office and wider Ormiston family unite in a humanitarian fundraiser on Wednesday 23 March and raise lots of funds for the Disasters Emergency Committee Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.
