Cornwall and Devon Sending Love to Ukraine

Thank you so much for helping us to smash our original target of £1000. We have now sent 30 (yes, 30) vans to the Poland/Ukraine border.

Your kind and generous donations go towards fuel and ferry crossings. Our volunteer drivers pay for their own accommodation and expenses - and some pay for fuel as well. Whilst £9,000 is an amazing sum, and we never dreamt that you could all be so generous, that equates to £300 per van, which we hope you will agree is amazing.

Our next trip is scheduled for 31st May, when drivers will be giving up their Jubilee Bank Holiday weekends. We will, once again, be linking up on the border with our contacts in the Polish Humanitarian Army.

We have seen first-hand that the aid that we take goes straight to those that need it. 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.
