Like many across the United Kingdom and wider world, we are shocked and deeply saddened by the events currently unfolding in Ukraine and Russia.

In times like these, it can be easy to feel a sense of helplessness when witnessing such heartbreak and destruction. We were eager to lend a helping hand in any way, so we’ve made Lolly HQ a ‘drop off point’ where locals can leave much-needed supplies to be sent directly to those in need in Ukraine. We are currently accepting donations of essentials such as medical supplies, long life food, baby food, toiletries, disposable nappies, small toys and colouring books, along with children’s clothing and high-vis jackets.

We will then deliver these valuable essentials to a collection hub in Sturminster Newton, ahead of their departure to Ukraine. We hope that any donations, no matter how big or small, will assist Ukrainian refugees during this dark period. We must ask that your generous donations are in immaculate condition due to the immediacy of this mission.

If you would like to make a kind donation, please bring any supplies to Lolly Ltd, The Studio, 7 Old Yarn Mills, Sherborne, DT9 3RQ, by 6pm on Thursday, 3rd March.

We pray that more peaceful days are ahead.
