In just 24 hours, the staff from Norland View have sourced donations of clothes, toiletries and baby supplies from friends, families, neighbours and other homes.

The home's youngsters also put leaflets through neighbours' doors appealing for donations.

The supplies have been dropped off at the collection being organised by Halifax Ukrainian Club and The Leo Group.
