“I’ve been watching what’s happening all over the news and felt like there must be something I can do to help out. We’re hoping to get as many people in as possible.”

Since Russia launched the invasion over two weeks ago, about two million people are believed to have fled their homes and risk becoming cut off as essential services are impacted by fighting.

Since the invasion, Ukraine has seen an outpouring of support from around the world as communities have launched efforts to support those in need, with several collection points set up for donations in the North East.

Bakery chain Greggs was warned the on-going conflict in one of Europe’s biggest food-producing countries could lead to price hikes in its stores, while airline Jet2 has suspended flights to Poland for two months following the invasion.

The UK government has promised a “light touch” approach to granting visas for those fleeing the war, but a no-fly zone over Ukraine continues to be ruled out for fear it could prompt direct conflict with Russia.

#Hairgoals will open to support Ukraine on Sunday, March 20, from 10am-3pm.
