Kind-hearted Alyth resident donates clothing and blankets to refugees fleeing Ukraine

Posted: 31st March 2022

Frances Warren, who receives support from Hillcrest Futures’ Burnside Court service in Alyth, recently organised a collection of donations to help people fleeing Ukraine.

After watching the news over the past few weeks and seeing the situation unfold, Frances felt upset and helpless. Knowing that she wanted to do something to help, Frances decided to go through her wardrobe and pick out clothes to send to refugees fleeing Ukraine. She also donated a weighted blanket and teddy bears.

Frances encouraged others at the service to get involved and the pile of donations quickly grew. Along with her support worker Tracy, Frances loaded up the car to take the donations to Touch Of Poland in Perth who will deliver the items on her behalf.

Frances co-ordinated the collection of donations with minimal help from staff, and everyone at the service is extremely proud of her efforts.
