In a coordinated effort by competitor companies to work together for the greater good,T&M is supporting Gardening Express' Chris Bonnett is his efforts to help Ukraine and is working with him on logistics and fundraising to transport medicine, food, nappies, duvets and baby milk from the UK.
Garden Express' Chris Bonnett has updated on the mission: "We are in touch with the Red Cross to go over distribution details - they are extremely happy. 'It's just amazing what you are doing Chris, what you are all doing' bought a tear to my eye last night. We will sort it out with the Cross so everything goes to the people in the most despair. Our transporters are prepared to drive in to Ukraine and make sure the aid goes to people in most need. There were bombings from the air last night, so even aid agencies in Ukraine find themselves in bunkers.
"My friend's Mum in Poland took some clothes to Ukrainians that had been lucky enough to make it across the border yesterday. They asked if she had bread - so it is humanitarian aid that is desperately needed now. Thanks so much for all your support and donations so far.
"Let's keep getting the message out and help our Ukrainian friends in their hour of need. As soon as we need people to help pack any donations above the volunteers we already have, I'll put out another call. Thank you so much for your support - without you, this wouldn't be happening, we would not be able to help so many people, I'm just the conduit here - everyone that takes time to donate and support is a hero in their own way to me. #TrucktoUkraine #CitizenAid
