J Davidson will be part of a convey of four ambulances set to be delivered to the war-torn Ukraine.
Organised by a team from Greater Manchester Businesses and the voluntary sector, they plan to set off today on the 3-day, 1250 miles journey this coming weekend, having raised funds to purchase former NHS ambulances.
With donations from local businesses and a crowd funding page the group have manged to raise in excess of £35,000.
Volunteer, Nathan explained, “It’s been nearly a year since the invasion in the Ukraine and support is still required, there’s so many people suffering over there. The ambulances don’t just provide first aid and medical supplies, they are often the only means of transportation for the evacuation of innocent civilians.”
Nathan Evans, from the team, then added “We can’t thank J Davidson’s, and everyone else involved enough for their contribution and allowing us to make this happen.”
With four months in planning, the ambulances will now be driven via Dover to Calais, through Belgium, Netherlands and Germany before a handover to support charities in Poland. It’s then anticipated the vehicles with be taken to areas of combat, Kyiv, Lviv, Kharkiv, Rivne and Chernihiv.
J Davidsons, Managing Director, Jamie Davidson added, “We think Nathan and his team are incredible. It’s so commendable what they have set out to achieve and it’s a pleasure to support them.”
