A SWIMMING school has pledged to continue sending supplies to Ukraine until their efforts are no longer needed.

Brighton Swimming School, based at the Brighton Swimming Center on Eastern Road, began sending essential aid to Poland’s border with Ukraine when war broke out in February.

Her customers have received the list of required items and continue to donate all they can to the school’s cause, in an effort

Donations are also made by the school, on behalf of its clients, to a Polish community group in London, which makes weekly trips to the border.

Paul Smith, owner of Brighton Swimming School, said: “I was immediately shocked and sickened by the pain and felt I had to do something, so we came up with a plan.

“To date, we have collected over three tonnes of aid. I think people are really, really upset about what’s going on and they’re determined to help.
