Duncan Private Hire launches appeal to collect vital supplies for Ukraine

We have just completed our first batch of aid supplies to our local collection point, in Trowbridge.

Intense conflict in Ukraine is threatening the lives of families across the country. Homes have been destroyed. Essential services have been hit. Families have been torn apart. People have been injured and, Lives have been lost.

Duncan Private Hire recently launched an appeal with its drivers, family and friends to collect vital supplies needed for those fleeing the war torn country. With their drivers help, Duncan Private Hire have just completed their first drop of those supplies to their local collection point (Civic Hall Trowbridge). The drop consisted of medical supplies, baby products, toiletries, winter clothing, shoes and boots and, non-perishable food supplies.

In addition, Duncan Self Drive (Swindon & Melksham branch) have financially sponsored an arctic lorry to help meet the costs associated with transporting such vital goods to their final destination. The lorry will leave from Swindon via Poland. We hope that these donations will go some way to making what is a really difficult and trying time for the people of Ukraine a little easier and help provide the necessary support needed for those who have been forced to flee their homes.
