Dear Members and Readers,
The Russian invasion of Ukraine preoccupies our minds. The stream of images that we have seen since 24 February continues to shock the world to its core. What we collectively experience is a human tragedy and humanitarian crisis on a scale unprecedented in our lifetimes on our very doorstep. But there’s been a magnificent response to it from businesses, individuals and NGOs. From day one of the Russian invasion, our member companies have stepped forward to provide generous help in all forms and shapes. Donations, collections, recommendations and ideas are being widely shared via our website and social media channels. The BPCC also #standswithUkraine and our www section provides advice and help, with examples from individual member companies. There are also links to the NGOs that help our Ukrainian neighbours and all displaced nationals. We will continue to upload appeals for help and further activities that our members lead on. Please share any projects that we don’t know about yet.
