A town's community has come together to raise vital funds and donations to people fleeing war torn Ukraine.

Caroline Topping, at Beccles Community Hub, is working with Sue Taylor from Beccles Sewing and Handicrafts and are sewing "Sunflowers for Ukraine."

This is a twofold project where people can wear the sunflower and show their support for Ukraine and also raise funds to go to Ukraine.

They are available in Beccles Community Hub and Beccles Sewing and Handicrafts for a suggested minimum donation of £2. 

Other members of the community are coming forward and asking if they can also help in making them.
