Asks for help
The Ukraine Relief Group that operates from the TN2 Community Hub needs bicycles - if you have one that you don't need, please consider donating it. They are open on Wednesdays 2pm-8pm and Saturdays 10am to 2pm - Demand is high to allow our guests to get around without becoming a burden to hosts. Also - if you are a decent hand at fixing bikes, or know someone else who is, please contact them as some of the bikes need a bit of fixing. https://www.facebook.com/groups/ukrainereliefgroup is their Facebook group
A group sending relief goods to Ukraine would like a set of commercial scales to weigh the goods - if you have something suitable, please email firstname.lastname@example.org who will pass on the message.
