Bailiffs in Jersey and Guernsey have launched fundraising appeals for organisations that are supporting the humanitarian effort in Ukraine.

In Jersey

Timothy Le Cocq is calling on islanders to donate much-needed funds to help those caught up in the conflict, following the country's invasion by Russian forces.

Jersey Overseas Aid will then distribute the funding to areas and organisations where it will have the greatest impact.

Donations can be made in the following ways:

  • By cheque - payable to ‘The Bailiff’s Ukraine Appeal’ and sent to Royal Court House, Royal Square, St Helier, Jersey, JE1 1BA

  • By e-form at

  • By donation to Side by Side in order to receive the tax benefit of charitable donations

In Guernsey

The Bailiff’s Disaster Relief Fund Ukraine Appeal has been opened in Guernsey.

The fund has existed since 2001 and acts as a focus for island donations in support of fund-raising initiatives promoted by the Disasters Emergency Committee, an English registered charity.

Guernsey Bailiff Richard McMahon said:

“The Bailiff’s Fund serves to facilitate the making of donations in this Island, offering the means by which to record the continuing generosity of the people of Guernsey. There are other ways in which people can donate directly to those organisations offering aid to Ukraine, but I feel it appropriate to pool donations of those who prefer to use this Fund so that they can be passed to the DEC to assist those people in, or who have fled from, Ukraine in their hour of need. We know that any donation, however small, will do some good and be appreciated by those who deserve our help.”

Anyone wishing to make a donation through the Bailiff’s Disaster Relief Fund can do so: • By bank transfer: Bank: NatWest Bank, Guernsey Sort Code 60-09-20 Account Number 74070487

• In person at the bank counter: Any branch of NatWest in the Bailiwick for the account of Bailiff’s Disaster Relief Fund Ukraine Appeal, number 74070487 • By post:

Cheques may be made payable to Bailiff’s Disaster Relief Fund Ukraine Appeal and sent to The Bailiff’s Chambers, Royal Court House, St. Peter Port, GY1 2NZ
