There has been an overwhelming response to an offer from Wreningham villagers to collect together much-needed medical, food and other aid supplies for refugees from the Ukrainian conflict, fleeing to Poland and other neighbouring countries.
Village resident Ian Macrae led a small team in offering to receive clothing, sleeping bags, nappies, medicines, personal hygiene items and food to be taken over to Poland.
The response was overwhelming with a room at the village hall filled with medical and sanitary items and Spratts Coaches offices in the village filled with clothing, bedding and footwear.
Ian said: “People in Wreningham and nearby areas have been wonderful, very thoughtful. We were absolutely overwhelmed and eventually, sadly, we had to start turning people away.
“We got a good lorry load of aid, so thank you very much everybody. We will be taking it to a larger local centre where they will be loading up a lorry to head to the Poland border area. We cannot take any more items at this time.”
