The Chair of Seaton with Slingley Parish Council, Councillor Alyson Slater and Members of the Parish Council all share the horror and sadness felt by people around the world at the current situation in Ukraine.
The Parish Council is shocked and appalled by the invasion of Ukraine by Russian forces and by the scenes of ordinary Ukrainian people fleeing for their lives, being killed or badly injured.
How to help
We are aware that residents may want to offer their support. The British Red Cross has advised that the most effective way of doing this at the current time is via cash donations, which can be made online via the British Red Cross or by calling 0300 023 0820.
The Red Cross is advising that they are not sending volunteers or donated goods to Ukraine at this time and have asked people to contribute through donations. Further information on this is available on the British Red Cross.
Our thoughts remain firmly with Ukraine.
