A PRIMARY school has shown its support to those in Ukraine after receiving an 'overwhelming' amount of donations.

Students and staff at Khalsa Primary School, on Wexham Road, Slough, turned to the community in hopes to get items that could be delivered to Ukraine to help those fleeing the war.

On Tuesday, March 1, the school was put in touch with a local couple who were arranging a road trip to deliver items via the border in Poland.

The couples' close family and friends are residents in Ukraine and have been sheltering in underground bunkers, surviving on just a limited food supply and essentials.

Khalsa Primary said: "Our school community has been deeply saddened by recent events in Ukraine and the plight of its people.

"As the Khalsa it is our duty to remain in high spirits and to step up to do whatever we can to help those in need.

"We turned to our Khalsa Primary community for donations and were overwhelmed with the kindness and generosity shown.

"We were inundated with everything from blankets to baby food."

The donated items have been collected to get ready to be delivered to Ukraine this week.
