Over £100,000 has been raised to provide vital aid to the brave people of Ukraine. Medical supplies and equipment bought with donations from a list supplied by Ukrainian doctors have now arrived in Ukraine. 


A Benefit Auction for Ukraine on the clocks of Royal FloraHolland on 14 March yielded more than 165,000 euros. Previously, various growers auctioned flowers and plants worth more than 41,000 euros for Giro555 on their own initiative. In addition to a contribution in the form of transaction costs from growers and buyers worth more than 14,000 euros, Royal FloraHolland has supplemented the total amount to 250,000 euros. 

Dave Andrews from Planet gardening is looking for a truck to take suppleis to Ukraine:
'Flowers for Ukraine with Shane Connolly’, a flower-filled online Ukraine fundraiser supported by Flowers from the Farm is taking place at 7pm on Wednesday, 6th April, in aid of the British Red Cross Society’s Ukraine Crisis Appeal. 
Connolly is hoping to raise over £10,000 in under 2 weeks and attract an online audience of over 1,000, each donating £10+ watch his foam-free spring demonstration of seasonal, local, British spring cut flowers donated by Flowers from the Farm growers. Every single penny donated will go straight to the Appeal. Since the first post appeared online late yesterday, nearly £4,000 has already been donated on the dedicated Justgiving page.
