Ukrainian baker is bringing his community together by organising a fundraising bake sale to help those caught up in the conflict in his homeland.

Yuriy Kachak said he felt “helpless” as news of the Russian invasion unfolded and decided to use his skills to do what he can to help people affected.

He will open Deanston Bakery in Shawlands, Glasgow on Sunday March 6, when it would normally be shut, to host a sale of breads, cakes and treats he has baked along with home baking donated by local people.

All proceeds raised on the day will go to help those affected by the war in Ukraine, with the money likely to be shared between various charities.

The popular Deanston Bakery is in the Shawlands area of Glasgow (PA)

Mr Kachak told the PA news agency: “We’re opening this Sunday to raise funds for Ukraine.

“I felt a bit helpless when it all started so I thought that there’s a lot of things I can’t do but this is a thing I can do, I can help people out.

“So we’re opening on Sunday, doing the things we have every day, we have buns, bagels, Eastern European honey cake.

“I’ve also asked local businesses who would like to join us and the response has been phenomenal, a lot of companies and people will bake from home or take part in other ways, we’re very grateful to all those who have spread the message.

“We also will be selling raffle tickets. 

“We hope it’s going to be good weather, we’ve set up tables outside and we hope to have a great day and raise lots of money.

“All 100% of sales will be going to Ukraine.

“It’s not about us as a business, it’s about people getting together and raising funds to help those who need it.”

Mr Kachak, who is from the Ivano-Frankivsk region in western Ukraine, has lived in the UK for 19 years and moved to Scotland four years ago.
