Supporting our Ukraine guests in Aberfeldy
Transport help required for Highland Perthshire Welcomes Ukraine (HPWU)
Our Ukrainian guests need some support with transport, as we all know it can be very difficult or simply impossible to get to some appointments by bus.
We now have 20 families in Highland Perthshire, located in Aberfeldy, Kenmore, Fearnan, Dull and Pitlochry.
None of the families have a car, and bus connections don’t always allow them to attend appointments on time.
Many of our new arrivals are living outside the
centre of Aberfeldy. 2 families are living in Kenmore, 2
families in Fearnan, 1 in Dull
They all need to attend appointments in the Job
Centre in Perth - to receive their Universal Credit.
Kids need transport to football and other activities
Some Ukrainians have serious health conditions which
might require lifts to hospital appointments in Perth
Lifts to do shopping in Perth.
The aim is to set up a Google Calendar where both the
drivers and those in need of a lift can feed in their
information i.e. a matching system
If you can assist, please could you let me know.
If you would like to know more about the “Highland Perthshire Welcomes Ukraine” fwork taking place in this region.,the link below will let you know what is already happening and how you can assist this community project.

Breadalbane Community Larder
For emergency support call 0345 30 111 00 (Mon – Fri 9.00am – 5.00pm) or email email@example.com
The Community Larder is open at Offizone on Kenmore Street each Saturday from 11.00am – 12.30pm for customers to purchase dried and tinned goods at a reduced rate – 4 items for £1. A FoodShare table is also available for anyone keen to reduce food waste.
The FoodShare table at the rear of Aberfeldy Parish Church is open 24/7 and often has a variety of goods which would otherwise be sent to the Co-op's bio-digester. It's our Christian responsibility to 'tend the garden' ie our planet so we can all do our bit to reduce food waste by 'shopping' at the FoodShare table from time to time.
Building of the permanent shelter has begun and although it doesn't look particularly pretty right now it will be much better when it's finished. There are plans to include a community fridge enabling us to provide an even wider variety of goods. Remember, this is not about feeding the hungry but rather, this part of the Community Larder project is for the whole community, to make a difference in reducing food waste which in turn has an environmental impact in these days of heightened awareness of the climate emergency.
If you know of anyone struggling to make ends meet, please let them know about the range of support provided by Breadalbane Community Larder.
The Larder is a joint initiative of several local churches and also involves members of the local community. If you would like to be involved, please contact the team on 07513 652597 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
If you need transport to any of our events, please contact Upper Tay Transport on 07388 236 233 or email@example.com
