Time for a little update from our side. Thanks to your generosity we managed to send 5 lorries full of the most needed goods to Ukraine. Some of the money raised was spent on fuel, ferry tickets and food for the drivers. Our drivers made it successfully to Ukraine, you can read more about it on our Facebook group – Northamptonshire Help for Ukraine – where you can also find photos and video reports.
We decided to continue our work. We will continue to collect the most necessary things and deliver them to Ukraine. Please head directly to our Facebook group to see what help is currently needed.
We would like to thank everyone involved for their help. Without you it would not have been possible! Slava Ukraini!
24 February 2022. Russia has launched a large-scale invasion of Ukraine, marking a significant escalation of the ongoing Russian-Ukrainian war that began in 2014.
We want to show our support for the Ukrainians so we have set up a Facebook group to coordinate support for Ukraine in the Northamptonshire area and we are collecting the most necessary items to deliver to Ukraine.
We have already collected many donations, now we need your help with raising money for fuel to transport to Ukraine! One of our campaigners met with Ukrainian drivers in Rothwell today, they offered us their help to transport the donations straight to Ukraine. We have 15 lorries available, each needing around 800-1000 litres of fuel + other costs incurred along the way (ferry from UK to France etc). We need to raise around £1,500 for each lorry, our goal in total is 25K. Thank you in advance for your help and commitment. You are amazing!
Thank you for your support – Slava Ukraini!
