Everything from sleeping bags to spanners are being collected in a fresh charity drive to help the people of Ukraine. 

North Norfolk Aid for Ukraine has launched its winter appeal, hoping to gather as many items as possible to help Ukrainians survive the colder months there as the Russian war in the country drags on.

Group volunteer Matt Cole said sleeping bags, thermals, bedding, hats, gloves, cooking stoves and food were all needed.

Mr Cole said: “We have been asked to get construction and building tools to help with the construction of bomb shelters in the front line areas.

“The front-line villages are being bombed on a daily basis and this push is to help families and schools to stay as safe as possible.”

Mr Cole said the group was planning another delivery run to get the donations to those in need later in October. 

He said there would be another run to deliver shoe boxes full of Christmas gifts in early December. 

The aid group was formed after Russia invaded its neighbour in February last year. Since then it has fundraised for, collected and transported well over £500,000 in goods.
