In light of the devastating crisis in Ukraine, many of our businesses and brands are supporting the humanitarian effort and the charities playing a vital role on the ground. Here’s how…
Throughout March, Bluebird will be adding a discretionary £2 to your bill which will go directly to UNICEF UK’s Ukraine appeal as part of #CookForUkraine, supporting the families and children that have been displaced. Find out more here.
Jigsaw have sent warm coats and jumpers for refugees and made a generous donation to the Disaster Emergency Committee to help provide much needed shelter, food and water the millions of Ukrainian’s displayed by war.
Granger & Co
Over on Pavilion Road, Granger & Co will be supporting #CookForUkraine and adding a voluntary £1 to your bill. For every hotcake dish sold, they’ll also donate an additional £1.
£10 from every sale at RIXO will go to the DEC Ukraine Appeal.
GANNI and founders, Ditte and Nicolaj Reffstrup, have donated 100,000 DKK to the Danish Refugee Council, currently on the ground in Ukraine, supporting their efforts to save lives and provide emergency relief and protection.
Marks & Spencer
Marks & Spencer moved quickly to support UNICEF UK’s Ukraine Appeal with a corporate donation and pledge to double donations from customers who selected UNICEF UK as their Sparks charity. Following that, they announced a further £1.5 million support package – this included a donation of £500,000 to UK for UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency and £500,000 worth of products urgently needed on the ground. They also allocated £500,000 to match colleague fundraising and ongoing Sparks double donations resulting in support of over £2.6 million. Find out more and how you can help here.
Gail’s have joined the #CookForUkraine campaign by joining bakeries around the world and creating Hamantaschen. Every penny from Hamantaschen sales will be donated directly to the Polish Humanitarian Action, to help them assist Ukrainian refugees at the Polish border.

Funds will be used to provide food, first aid, medicine, shelter and warm clothing for those still in Ukraine and those fleeing.
