    Much love to you all


    *****UPDATE****** 15th March 22

    You have done it again! Your support and generosity is just incredible!

    We have Raised our target to £8000!!!

    Joanna has just returned from the 14 hour round coach trip, to the Ukrainian border and the scenes are desperate - You can see further updates pictures and videos on FB - A Brit in Poland

    Since we started this only last Tuesday we have brought back over 210, Mothers, children and various pets - found them accommodation or assisted them to move on to their required destination.

    We will not stop. Thank you all again.


    We are overwhelmed with the support we are recieving from all you truly wonderful people whos genorosity has absloutley blown us away to support Jo & Chris get all these people to safety. .

    So much so we have upped the target to £5000!

    This would provide a further 5/6 coaches to do the 14 hour round trip which would just be incredible. With so many people crossing the border every minute we just want to do what we can, as I mentioned before in “real time’ this is happening right now!

    Joanna and Chris are just normal people (well no they are phenominal!) with the biggest hearts, trying to do what they can. to support the people of Ukraine at this this horrendous time and it couldnt be done without your support!

    You are all amazing people!!

    You can keep up to date with the coaches and what is going on - social media.

    and I will share all updates on here.

    Again a huge thank you to every one who has donated this far, big and small. Every single penny counts.


    My dear friends Joanna and Chris Ernest who live in Poland are seeing this crisis first hand and have stepped in to action and managed to source 3 buses and are committed to getting as many woman and children from the border to saftey as they physically can!

    With the cost of fuel at an all time high we are seeking finacial support to be able to do as many trips to the border as we can. A round trip for a coach that seats 62 people costs 5076zl (around £860) The aim is do as many as we possibly can!

    Every little helps!!!

    I have set this UK page up on their behalf as the Polish Go Fund site can not be translated in to English and is a bit tricky to navigate .

    Im sure there are so many of you like me who just feel helpless and want to do some thing, this is happening NOW!!!! In real time and you can see and trust that your money is going to the right place at the right time!

    Updates can be found on social media - A Brit in Poland

    Thank you for all your help so far, I will update on my social media also.

    Thank you so much



    Chris & Jo
