It was unanimously agreed at the UNISON Lothian Health Branch Committee last week to donate £5k to the Disasters Emergency Committee to assist the people of Ukraine.  UNISON is a member led Trade Union and our members have asked the Branch to do what we can to support those caught up in this horrendous invasion.  

The Branch International Officer, Susan Sim is also making contact with local charities to ask what specific items people should donate.  We have been asked for supplies to help people manage some long term/chronic conditions such as diabetes.  Most of the items requested can be bought over the counter such as glucose tablets and once we have a list of things needed the Branch will send out a list to all members of items they can donate.

Every UNISON Office in Lothian will act as a drop off point for people to donate and we will send out details of your local UNISON Office as soon as we have a list of items
