In Total for this project together we raised over £5000! and that's not the true total as many people that donated asked to remain anonymous, to those people you know who you are and we still wanted to say a special thank you to you all as well, although your donations anonymous its not taken for granted or forgotten.

Thanks to you all we raised enough money to open a community centre in East Marsh Cleethorpes that is not only the new home for our Grimsby\Cleethorpes classes but is also open for public use and will help thousands of people for many years to come, so well done on a great effort!

People Who Donated Money or Aid To Help The People of Ukraine For The Schools Ukrainian Mission Completed April 5th 2022.

In 2022 as a school we decided to try and help the people of Ukraine directly once Russia invaded their country, with millions of people displaced including thousands of children we wanted to do something and so come up with the Ukrainian Mission 2022!

over 3 weeks in March 2022 we collected donations of aid and financial support totalling over £7000 in value, we planned the logistics and all paperwork needed, found contacts in Ukraine and then my self Sifu Sean Mann and my student Simon Welton drive a the aid directly to Ukraine our self's before returning home safely a few days later.

This was a massive achievement for our school and an amazing effort by everyone involved, although what we achieved is small in terms of what's needed we as a good once again proved actions speak louder than words and I am extremely proud of what we did and how it was received by the people of Ukraine.

 

As well as thanking the many people that made Aid Donations and help organise the project, direct school students and otherwise i would also like to thank the people that pledged financially to the crowdfund, details can be found below, on top of this there was over £500 in anonymous donations as well, we can not list you by your request but we thank you for all your support also.

I would like to say a special thank you at this point to my student and close friend Simon Welton from Hull who come with me to Ukraine and helped with the driving as well as other things that was mission critical during this project, as you can imagine the trip to Ukraine wasn't without risk and his courage and determination to see the project a success was humbling, thank you my friend, was an absolute honour to share the experience with you.

Please see the short video below of how this project was put together and carried out, a massive well done and thank you to everyone involved, a truly life changing project for many people, I will personally never forget this and what we all did.
