    Story

    We're two guys who are shocked and horrified by the unfolding conflict in Ukraine. So much so that we’ve decided we cannot just sit idly by and watch this happen, and feel moved to help as best we can. If you feel the same way, please consider donating to our cause or sharing our message. All contributions, no matter the amount are greatly appreciated.

    We next head out on the Jubilee weekend, leaving on the 1st and returning on the 5th of June.

    James and Mike have now driven two aid missions to Poland and into Western Ukraine to deliver essential supplies to the refugees there.

    They’re raising money to purchase these items needed by the civilians in Ukraine caught up in the war, as well as to fund the travel costs to bring families back. These groups are sadly comprised women and children, as all men of fighting age are required to stay in Ukraine to be called upon to join the defence effort.

    The items most recently requested by our contacts at the aid centres we've visited inside Ukraine are:

    Buckwheat , Oatmeal, Tea, Coffee, Sugar, Dried fruit & nuts, Energy/fruit/cereal bars, tinned meat & fish, tinned soup or sachets, tinned beans, tinned meat paste/pate.

    Wet wipes, baby products (surplus of nappies at present), toothpaste/brushes, talcum powder, baby lotion, washing up liquid, laundry powder/liquid.

    Protective glasses, heavy duty work gloves, knee & elbow protection, boots & socks, underwear up to XL (Men's, women's and children's).

    We're also coordinating donations of these items in person, if you don't feel comfortable with donating financially. You can find out more or message us on our Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/Yorkshire-Aid-to-Ukraine-100384132622620.

    **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.

      It’s nearly the end of our second trip. This time we got the opportunity to go into Ukraine to donate directly to the people in need. We also picked up a mother and son and brought them back out. We now have 5 mums and 5 kids ( and 3 dogs) in the minibus and tomorrow we get the ferry to the UK for them to be united with there sponsors.

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
