A SPRING Fayre in Kenilworth is set to boost support for families in Ukraine.
The free event organised by the local Save the Children branch is being held at St Francis of Assisi Parish Centre in Warwick Road on Saturday (March 19), from 10am to 4pm.
Among the wares will be homemade cakes, children’s hand knits and plants, while local businesses will be selling jewellery, beauty products, pet goods, cleaning products and small gifts for Mother’s Day. There will also be a raffle.
Organiser Monique Morris said: “Save the Children are supporting children still in Ukraine with online mental health sessions and providing support through local partners to make sure families can access medicine as well as water and dwindling food supplies.
“In Romania, we’re making sure families can get food, clothing, toys and essentials like nappies. We’re also helping children to stay safe and offering psychological support to help them cope with this massive upheaval.
“We’re also getting ready to help families in Poland, where the number of refugees continues to increase dramatically.
“It’s still early days in our response, and we’ll continue to expand wherever we can, working through partners and with both refugee and host communities.”
