UNISON is doing a collection for the Red Cross. The Council is also collecting for the same appeal at the staff event on the 2nd floor (taking place from 11am until 2pm), so hopefully we can raise enough to help make a difference.
The Red Cross is working via the International Committee of the Red Cross with both the Palestinian Red Crescent Society and Magen David Adom across Gaza, the West Bank and Israel to provide emergency medical relief, equipment, transport and more. This will be needed for some time into the coming weeks and months. Please do take a look via the link below at the kind of relief that has so far been provided:
Donate to the Israel and Occupied Palestinian Territory Appeal (redcross.org.uk)
If you are able to help with the collection in 5PS, then meet us in the foyer at 12.30pm on Weds. It doesn’t matter if you only have 15 minutes or if you can spare longer, it will all help.
If you are working in another building and would like to do a collection there, drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can work out how we can help you.
