How we're helping
All of us at Holland & Barrett have been horrified and upset by the war in Ukraine, and we are doing all we can to help with the humanitarian crisis.
We stand with the people of Ukraine and all those affected by the invasion by Russia.
We’re here to support the wellness of our colleagues and customers, and care for those in need.
So far we have provided over £380,000 of food supplies to the people of Ukraine and also made an initial donation of £100,000 to the Disasters Emergency Committee, and we’re donating €50,000 to the Irish Red Cross.
