    Story

    We are a garden centre near Penrith in Cumbria. We have links with both Ukraine and Poland and have already made two journeys to the village we support in Poland to take aid for the Ukrainian families who have fled there.

    Having seen the way the war in Ukraine is progressing we now want to support the Ukrainian emergency services who are doing an incredible job helping both civilian and military casualties. A number of organisations have already taken ex NHS ambulances to Poland for onward shipment to Ukraine. We want to do the same and have already made the contacts to do so.

    We just need your help now to raise the money for the vehicle itself. Our garden centre business will pay for the fuel and ferry to get there, as we have done with our previous trips. We have volunteer drivers too. Thank you for your support and please follow our progress here and on facebook. https://www.facebook.com/thepotplacegardencentre

      We made it! The ambulance reached the eastern Ukraine and is now in the hands of the paramedics. They sent us a lovely message via Facebook thanking us for the equipment and for thinking of them as they struggle to defend their land. Its thanks to you all that we achieved this together. This fund is now closed but its on to the next appeal which can be found here https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/ambulance-and-ambulance-bike-for-ukraine . Our support for the medical services of Ukraine will continue!

      Yesterday, after four months of fundraising and planning, and four days of driving, our ambulance made it to the Ukrainian border. We are in Przemysl, Poland which is less than 10 miles from Ukraine. We met our contact Joanna at the Przemysl Ambulance Station handed over the ambulance. In the next few days she will arrange to meet their contact in the Lviv Ambulance Service at the border. It will then be in service in Ukraine and sent to the eastern war zone. Thanks to all our supporters and donators we have achieved our aim. Thank you 🙏
