Since founding LH I have been amazed and empowered by the women I have met striving for a brighter future. There are so many women doing the most incredible things that we would love to highlight in the lead up to International Women's Day, however, like all of you watching the distressing situation unfolding in Ukraine; it has bought their nation to the forefront of our minds.
As the news broke on the 24th February of the invasion, we were on set shooting our new Spring collection. Sylvie, the new face of Lavender Hill, mentioned that her family live on the Hungarian Ukrainian border. We have kept in contact and over the past week as Sylvie's family have been working tirelessly to provide refugees with supplies as they cross the border.
On Thursday we sent our first care package of Lavender Hill supplies to them, and will continue to do so as they are needed.
We would encourage anyone who is able, to follow the link to the below article listing locations around the country that are currently gathering donations of all kinds for Ukrainians.
You can also donate directly to The British Red Cross, Choose Love and Unicef amongst other charities currently taking donations to help those fleeing. Donate here>
This International Women’s Day, we are dedicated to providing as much support as we can to the people facing this horror - female or otherwise.
