The company has donated a truck load of toys for the children of Ukraine, which have been sent to Chelm, Poland to the HELP UKRAINE centre.
We worked with LGL Worldwide Logistics based in Manchester and volunteers at HELP UKRAINE to arrange the shipment of toys. LGL freight company also provided their services free of charge. The truck of toys left our warehouses on Friday 8th April and arrived in Poland on Tuesday 12th April, where they will be distributed according to needs across regions of Ukraine.
In addition, a significant amount of cash funds has been donated to one of our toy distributors located in Dnipro, Ukraine, the city where the airport has been completed destroyed by Russian bombings. The distributor will be using the funds to help with a children’s shelter.
“We are fortunate to work in an industry which brings joy to children, and we could not stand back and allow a humanitarian crisis to unfold without us helping.
“We are a Global organisation and that allows us to have contacts throughout the world. We hope that this donation of toys and funds will help the people of Ukraine and we hope that there is peace very soon.”
Mike Butterworth, Divisional Director
