BELOW WE WILL LIST SOME APPEALS FOR AN ACTIVE RESPONSE. IT MAY BE FOR PRAYER, UNDERTAKING LOBBYING OF POLITICIANS, OR FOR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE OR MATERIAL AID.
People in our two Parishes (St Augustine, Barton, and St Mary’s, Brigg) are alerted to the above website. It is updated regularly, and it is sensible to respond to the appeal as its needs change as outlined.
Yesterday, it stated thus: “Update – Saturday 5 March
Thank you to the people of North Lincolnshire for their overwhelming generosity. The response for humanitarian aid for the people of Ukraine has been incredible. The collection points are full to capacity for items of clothing and children’s toys, thank you. Medical supplies, including first aid and baby food are still needed.”
People should check the updates regularly.
If people are physically, and practically, able to drop off their donations to one of the collection points please do so. If not bring them to Church next Sunday.
We would ask for volunteer(s) in each Parish to take those goods brought to Church to a collection point/centre.
It is important people remember the site gives updates for all the centres listed, and we shouldn’t second guess what is currently required.
Together we can express our unity, as a Church, and Parish, and as a friend of Ukraine.
We serve Jesus, and show him respect, when we do so to our fellow human beings. As written by The Evangelist, St John, “How can you claim to love the God you cannot see, if you fail to love your fellow human beings, all made in God’s image and likeness that you can see?”
