Cornwall and Devon Sending Love to Ukraine

It is now a year since the war began and you have helped us to raise over £23,000.

Your kind and generous donations go towards fuel and ferry crossings. Our volunteer drivers pay for their own accommodation and expenses. Some pay for fuel as well which can be over £500 per trip.

The money raised to date is an amazing sum, and it equates to approximately £250 per van load.

On 8th March, our tenth convoy will depart for the Polish/Ukraine border. It will include the 100th van. What an amazing achievement, made possible by you.

We have seen first-hand that the aid that we take goes straight to those that need it most. Sometimes within 24 hours of it being unloaded from our vans. We have also seen how desperate the situation is, and that is what motivates us to go again.

It is a 2,500 mile round trip. The price of diesel is still high. Your contributions power those vans, and we are so grateful to you.

This page was set up by Lesley - Darren Tait's aunt. Darren is the owner of Darren's Cars, and he is the driving force behind this initiative.
