We stand in solidarity with the people of Ukraine 🇺🇦 and we know many of the businesses of Canterbury will wish to show support in acknowledgement of the humanitarian crisis.
We have already seen the Marlowe lit blue and yellow, the Ukranian flag will soon be flying on the Westgate Towers, Canterbury Cathedral tolled its St Dunstan bell (1 minute for each day of the war) as part of a Europe-wide Cathedral initiative, and many of our businesses are either displaying posters or creating themed windows.
For information on how to help those affected in and from the Ukraine we recommend visiting the following website with a comprehensive list of donation options:
If you would like to link up with a local drop off centre to donate items, the best source is Facebook as options are changing daily.
There are other visual ways to show your support.
Perhaps display the Ukranian flower – The Sunflower.
This photo was taken of the window display at Fitzgerald Jewellers.
Alternativley a blue and yellow themed window would convey the same message.
Please tag Canterbury BID into your social posts and we will like and comment where possible.
