Local motorbike group make 1,400 mile trip to support Ukrainian refugees

Local Harley-Davidson motorbike group, Wolfruna Chapter

Local Harley-Davidson motorbike group, Wolfruna Chapter have been collecting money and items for Ukrainian refugees who are crossing the border into Poland.

Thousands of different items have been collected including nappies, baby wipes and powdered baby milk.

Members, Gavin Freebairn and Trevor Newman have donated the use of two vans for delivery. A total of six members of the group will be making the 1,400 mile journey to the Ukraine/Polish border. Director, Mark Culter said:

“We have been overwhelmed at the response we have had to the appeal, it has completely blown us away.

“Initially we set out with an idea a couple of weeks ago to take some water out in a van to the Polish-Ukrainian Border. Since then, it has snowballed.

"Whilst it’s impossible to give you the exact value donated, I expect it to be in the region of £8,000 - £9,000. We will be taking three vans full to the rafters of contributions.”

Paul Brothwood, Assistant Director added: “The generosity of club members and their friends and family has been immeasurable.

”In addition, local companies have also played a huge role in helping make this happen, including Sainsbury’s, T Newman Ltd, M3 Agency UK and others.

“This has been a fantastic effort and we hope this will go someway to help those fleeing the awful crisis in Ukraine."
