    Funded on Wednesday, 12th April 2023

    Story

    We're two normal guys who are shocked and horrified by the ongoing conflict in Ukraine. So much so that we bought a 16-seat minibus earlier this year and have been driving into Western Ukraine delivering Aid to Schools and bringing back families fleeing the conflict to the safety of their UK government approved sponsors. Any donations financial & physical are really appreciated.

    In the 5 trips we did in 2022 we delivered over 10 tonnes of aid and brought back 44 Refugees (mainly women & children) and 9 beautiful dogs. We stay in regular contact with everyone we bought back and all are doing well, adults all have jobs and the kids are settling in well to school.

    We next head out on Wednesday the 25th of January, returning on Sunday 29th.

    Given the sub-zero temperatures out there at this time of year along with Russian attacks on infrastructure knocking out power and therefore a lot of people's heating it’s not surprise the items most recently requested by our contacts at the aid centres is warm clothing for Babies, Children, Women and Men. Things like Boots, Jackets, thermal base layers Inc socks, power banks with a high power storage, generators, torches (rechargeable, wind up, even battery or candles will be used...) thermal blankets or even normal warm blankets for shock and hyperthermia treatment.even boot and glove heat pads & any field medical supplies

    We're also coordinating donations of these items in person, if you don't feel comfortable with donating financially. You can find drop warm clothing into any the Preston Baker Estate Agency Offices in York, Selby and Oakwood, Leeds.

    **If we are unable to raise the necessary funds to make one of the 4,000 mile trips (about £4,000) we will self fund the remainder, so that your money will always go towards improving the lives of the Ukrainian civilian victims of this war.

      We completed our 7th trip to Ukraine, taking out 2 twin cab pick ups for the Ukrainian Army to convert into combat vehicles. These were funded by Ukraine which means we still have enough funds to make our 8th trip out in our minibus to bring back more refugees. We are already thinking about trip number 9 so you continued help is really appreciated by ourselves and the people of Ukraine. Slava Ukraini

      We are now back. The hardest trip back we have done took 14 hours & 3 attempts we have made it from Ukraine to Poland. The polish did everything they could to stop us including breaking EU law, making up laws and threatening us with fines and imprisonment. This meant we had to drive for 20 hrs straight to make then crossing into the UK which was done in about 14 minutes as we have all the correct paperwork. Dropping the Refugees of with their sponsors and families made it all worth while. Thank you all for the continued support
