Eden Aid and IRT are coordinating and running weekly four-day round trips to Poland and going a short distance from the Ukrainian boarder, in order to deliver aid and to transport Ukrainian refugees to their host families.
Three staff members from CLC, Sarah Clark, Leah Haynes and Mandy Allen, were extremely inspired when meeting with Eden Aid to hand over the minibus, and have subsequently volunteered as drivers for this week’s convoy (Tuesday 16th August).
They set up a donation hub at Cheltenham Ladies’ College, where members of the school community have been donating urgently needed items, such as ready to eat food, first aid and medicines, toiletries, pet food, nappies, duvets and pillows, pushchairs and car seats, sleeping bags and tents, etc to be transported.
The community have also been raising additional funds for Eden Aid via Sarah, Leah and Mandy’s Just Giving page. Eden Aid are funded entirely by donations, and all their team and drivers are volunteers, meaning that all donations go directly towards helping the people of Ukraine.
