Special Coffee Stop on Saturday 27th August.

Churches and homes supporting families from Ukraine are coming together to mark 6 months of the conflict with a high-profile event to mark National Ukraine Day at the end of August.


The monthly Coffee Stop at Trinity Methodist Church Community Hub on Saturday 27 August will be bigger than usual with a collection point for donations of shoes, boots and toiletries which will be sent to Ukraine via Christian International Aid trucks in Preston. There will be tea, coffee, hot chocolate, bacon butties, scones, tea cakes, cake stall, jigsaws, and Trade Craft stall.


Trinity Hub Manager, Carol Baird explained: ‘We are really looking forward to bringing all the churches together for this special event. We need volunteers to wait on tables, and to help man the collection point. At the event there will be many Ukrainian guests being hosted by Ribble Valley hosts attending to help the event go well. We are asking everyone who volunteers to help on the morning if they can to wear a touch of yellow and blue – the Ukraine National colours. We are also doing a community art piece of a sunflower – the national flower of the Ukraine.’
