A DORCHESTER school is helping provide aid to the people of Ukraine.

The Prince of Wales School on Maiden Castle Road is collecting much-needed items in its school hall in support of Ukranians during the ongoing crisis, working in partnership with Food Plus Boscombe to bring help to Ukraine.

Donations are welcome at the school daily between 8am-6pm, ideally packed in a box with similar items together.

Essential items needed by the people of Ukraine include blankets, sleeping bags, thermal clothing and tents - as well as instant/canned food items, and toothbrushes.

For a full list of items and further details visit the Prince of Wales School's social media pages.
