Company of Master Jewellers launches Ukraine Appeal
The Company of Master Jewellers has launched a fundraising appeal to raise money for The British Red Cross Ukraine Crisis Appeal.
The appeal supports the work of the Ukrainian Red Cross, the ICRC and other Red Cross and Red Crescent partners working in border countries. Funds raised will provide urgent food and hygiene parcels and help evacuate the most vulnerable people from the country. Teams have also provided first aid training to 1,000 people in metro stations and bomb shelters, and are supporting fire fighters, medical and civil protection units.
Michael Aldridge, chairman of the CMJ, said: “We have all been shocked and saddened by the news footage of the war emerging in Ukraine as civilians are killed and innocent families are being torn apart. While our thoughts are with everyone affected by the conflict, we wanted to do something as a group that will really make a difference to those people living through this.
“Our fundraising appeal goes beyond CMJ membership – we hope that the whole jewellery and watch industry will get behind us and support this worthwhile cause. Every single donation will make a difference and go straight to those who need it most.”
