It all started when we sent an email around to our clients at the Business Hub informing them that we were collecting for the Ukrainian Appeal and there would be a collection point in reception for any of the required items. It was so successful that we ended up with an office full of supplies which had to be labelled and checked by the Ukrainian Embassy.
We quickly turned into a distribution hub with over 300 parcels and donating over £2000 for the cost of the 1st lorry. Our donations left for Ukraine in a lorry convoy together with 6 fully kitted out ambulances which had been fully funded by individuals.
The response from local people was amazing and we soon had many donations for the office. Luckily we were offered an empty warehouse so we could continue the good work with over 3000 boxes ready for another lorry to take to Ukraine.
With all the over whelming support from Basingstoke and Hampshire we had to take a break from donations.
We are now trying to raise funds for another lorry to take the next load to Ukraine starting with an indoor/outdoor car boot sale which unfortunately we had to cancel the last one in June but we are now ready and waiting for you to support or book a pitch with the pitch proceeds will go towards the transport for Ukraine.
