    Story

    As you will have undoubtedly seen, the news is currently saturated with the terrible situation with Ukraine. Here at Preston Caravans and Motorhomes we have been feeling, as I’m sure many of you have, a strong pull to do something to help the people in this dire situation.

    We have pledged to take a convoy to the Poland/Ukraine border. Our drivers will be volunteers from our Preston Caravan’s team and we will also be joined by a Polish/Ukrainian interpreter and a further volunteer who has already completed a trip to the Ukrainian border, whose contacts we will be using throughout our trip. We will be setting off on the 6th April.

    On the journey out, we will be taking specialised medical equipment, winter baby clothes, satellite phones and walkie talkies, as per the request of the teams down in Medyka. These have already been gathered and are ready to go.

    Once there, we are working with the Ukraine Border Action to collect 36 refugees who need to be reunited with family, friends or sponsors in the UK and Europe. As the refugee group will be almost exclusively women, children and elderly people, we are bringing a motorhome as a support vehicle for those who have medical or child nursing needs on the road. In addition, we have bought 2 minibuses to transport people, and a transit van to transport aid on the outward journey and luggage on the return trip.

    We are estimating that this journey in total will cost around £12,000. Any contribution towards fuel, accommodation on the return journey, ferry crossings or food for our convoy would be greatly appreciated.
