Plant & Hire Aid Alliance plans third convoy to Ukraine
06 April 2023
The Plant and Hire Aid Alliance has announced it will carry out further aid convoys in October this year.
Founded in 2022 following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the Alliance is made up of 60 plant and hire companies who have joined together to support the humanitarian effort in Ukraine.
As part of its annual report of its activities, the Plant and Hire Aid Alliance has said it will organise another convoy of vehicles to take humanitarian aid to Kosice in East Slovakia in October.
Jeremy Fish, Plant & Hire Aid Alliance founding member, said, “There are too few, doing too little, when so many need so much more. We need more help and support.
“If any Alliance members are interested in organising events, fundraisers or are willing to lobby their contacts for donations then please get in touch. Every penny we raise goes to Ukraine; we have no overheads and everything we do is on a voluntary basis.”
The convoy will be the third to be organised by the Alliance. In its first convoy in March last year, the Alliance, with the help of donations from the public and a number of companies, delivered 250 boxes, while in October it delivered a further 1,500.
The aid deliver so far includes mattresses, blankets, suitcases, 60 tonnes of food and medical products, 135 generators and 30,000 Christmas presents.
