Story

The Orcadian and McAdie & Reeve have joined forces to launch a local appeal that will see the delivery of vital items to the people of Ukraine in their time of need.

Both firms are hopeful that the generosity Orkney is so famously known for can play a crucial role in UK-wide efforts to assist — by delivering key supplies to the refugees who have been forced to flee their homeland after Russia’s invasion.

A huge appeal for vital donations and funds is planned, and at its conclusion, it is hoped that we can personally transport a huge assortment of bedding, mattresses (in good condition), blankets, clothing, shoes, toiletries, hygiene products, medical supplies (bandages), children’s toys, and baby items such as nappies and wipes to refugees.

In around six to eight weeks time, the lorry will then make the mammoth trek to north-east Romania — so we have set an initial fundraising target of £6,500, to cover ferries, fuel, complex paperwork, toll fees and insurance.

By donating, no matter the sum, you will be playing a key role in helping us make a difference and ensure that the Orkney community sponsors and supports this aid trip.

If donations top the £6,500 target, then the rest of the funds raised will be donated to the British Red Cross Ukraine Crisis Appeal.

    Wow! Almost £2,000 raised in just four hours! Honestly stunned at the response and support so far. Here's Mark Harcus from The Orcadian and Kieran Learmonth from McAdie & Reeve with one of the first items to be donated — an excellent use of a baby box!
