A team of volunteers who have joined together to provide much needed help to the people of Ukraine have been praised by the mayor of Wrexham.

Whilst the time of unease continues, people from across the UK have come together to lend a hand or provide donations for those affected by the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

On the Wrexham Industrial Estate, where one of the local collection points is taking place, queues of vehicles lined the car park with items for the cause or offering to take boxes to the arranged drop off point.

Inside the unit of F. Lloyd Warehousing, volunteers were organising donations into categories and boxes. This ranged from food, clothes and toiletries, to toys for the children.

Boxes were then collected by volunteers who have been delivering the supplies to the Polish border with Ukraine.

The Mayor of Wrexham, Councillor Ronnie Prince, was invited to come and see all the tireless work the volunteers were doing in their bid to help.

He got to speak with some of the organisers bringing the humanitarian effort together just before the convoy set off for the border.

Having seen for himself the scale of the operation, he said: “It is so humbling to see so many people coming together to help those in their time of need.

“Of course, the reasons for this initiative beginning are devastating but it is another way in which Wrexham shows strength and support for Ukraine during these testing times.

“I would like to thank all the people who have donated or given their time to package the supplies into boxes or transport them to the border.

“I also give my thanks to those who have organised all this. You are all doing such vital work and you are a credit to the community of Wrexham”.
