David Winn OBE Memorial Service & Lunch

On Friday 17th June, family, friends, and colleagues came together to celebrate the life of David Winn OBE with a private memorial service in the OBE Chapel at St Paul’s Cathedral, followed by a well-attended lunch at Plaisterer’s Hall in Central London.

From his role as Chairman of Winn & Coales International, his devotion to helping others through his charitable endeavours, and his passion for his old school, Eastbourne College, David Winn enriched the lives of so many and has left behind a great legacy since his passing in 2020. Guests from across the world from the Winn & Coales International group of companies and Eastbourne College came together and joined the Winn family and friends last week in a fitting tribute to an extraordinary man who is dearly missed by so many.

Thank you to all who attended and shared their many fond memories and stories of a beloved father, grandfather, chairman, colleague and friend.

Winn & Coales International Donates £35,000 for the Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal

Winn & Coales International Ltd has donated £35,000 for the Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal to the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC).

More than 4 million people have fled Ukraine since the conflict began. Leaving behind jobs, belongings and loved ones, they now face an uncertain future.

Intense conflict in Ukraine is threatening the lives and livelihoods of civilians across the country, with another 6.5 million displaced inside the country. Families have been separated. People have been injured. Lives have been lost.

Homes have been destroyed or are unsafe to live in. Critical infrastructure such as health facilities, water supplies and schools have also been damaged or destroyed.

At Ukraine’s borders with Poland, Romania, Hungary, Slovakia and Moldova, huge numbers of people are arriving with only what they can carry. In many places there are long waits to cross and scant facilities waiting for them on the other side, with temperatures dropping below freezing overnight.

There have also been increasing media reports of racism against people of colour who are being refused access to relief, aid and the right to cross the border to safety.

The DEC brings together 15 leading UK aid charities to raise funds quickly and efficiently at times of crisis overseas. DEC member charities including Age International, British Red Cross, CAFOD and Save the Children are responding to the crisis directly or through local partners in Ukraine; while others including CARE International, Christian Aid and International Rescue Committee are working in neighbouring countries to help refugees fleeing across the borders.

Due to the breadth of the DEC membership, they can effectively support a range of vulnerable groups. The immediate and primary focus of the relief effort is to support internally displaced people and refugees fleeing the conflict. DEC charities will be supporting families with cash grants, food packages, warm clothing and shelter.

DEC charities will also focus on ensuring access to Water, Sanitation and Hygiene. They will be repairing vital water infrastructure; and setting up water points to provide sources of clean, readily available water for people who have been displaced from their homes. DEC charities will also support hospitals and other primary healthcare facilities with water, medicines, and medical equipment; also providing trauma care and protection.

This is a rapidly changing crisis. Events in Ukraine and the resulting refugee movement into surrounding countries will inform the ongoing needs assessments and the DEC member charities’ response.

We are proud to support The DEC, if you would like to read more or donate to this great cause, visit their website here: https://www.dec.org.uk/appeal/ukraine-humanitarian-appeal
