After sitting back and watching the UK government drag their feet and speaking to family members struggling in the warzone we decided to try to raise funds and collect supplies for Ukraine.
We are going to drive medical, food and other supplies needed to the Ukraine / Ukraine border. We are in touch with family members in the area and a source helping rescue children in Ukraine. They are also keeping us informed of what essentials are required for us to prioritise donations as needed.
Once at the Polish Ukraine border, we hope to help those who need transport to get to the nearest airport , city or help in any way possible, hiring a people carrier if needs be. We plan to make these trips as and when required; once the van is full, we will take them where they need to be.
We have received many donations in the form of food, medicine and baby clothes with many people coming and helping to organise and pack ready to load on the van for our journey, anyway of helping no matter how big or small will be greatly appreciated. Thank you to everyone who has donated items so far. Please keep them coming, and a huge thank you to Phoenix Fixings LTD Bingley for offering to pay for fuel for one van for one leg of the journey enabling us to get the ball rolling, also a massive shout out to Nick Procter, Otley Plumbing and Heating, Mirror Mirror Bingley and Mirror Mirror On The Wall Baildon for collecting the supplies. Any and all help is massively appreciated.
