My horror and revulsion at the invasion of Ukraine is shared by thousands of Currys colleagues, and we share a determination to help the victims of this act of aggression. My thoughts are with all of those affected by the tragedy which is unfolding.
Today we are making a donation of £100,000 to the Red Cross. With branches in areas affected by the war in Ukraine, they’re well placed to deliver support where the need is greatest. Our virtual mobile network, iD Mobile, has joined other large mobile telecoms providers to provide free-rated text and call charges to Ukraine based numbers for its UK customers, as well as providing free-rated calls, text and unlimited data for iD Mobile customers in Ukraine.
While we don’t have a business in the Ukraine, we have partners there and colleagues nearby and will continue to stand with them, and with the victims of this act of the sort of senseless barbarism that we had hoped was part of Europe’s history.
