Staff and learners across all R.E.A.L. sites have been coming up with ways to help support Ukraine over the last few months, from organising collections and fundraising activities to crochet.

Learners and staff went to a local church in Mansfield to help form a human chain to load up a van full of donations. The amazing efforts were filmed by East Midlands Today and featured clips of R.E.A.L. learners.

Ellen Longmate, Learning Manager said: “The learners were amazing, it was great to see them getting fully involved.

“It’s just a little thing we can do to help.”
