The Ukrainian flag is currently flying outside our Civic Offices as a further show of support.
Charitable donations are best sent here via the Red Cross, who have a physical presence in the Ukraine Details of other charities that have already launched appeals can also be found here.
We'd like to say thank you too to Bunmi Okon from The Sewing Studio in Borehamwood, pictured below, who gave her valuable time to sew this beautiful flag for us.
