Covers donates lorries to Ukraine

Covers, Timber and builders merchants, announces it is donating three lorries to the humanitarian organisation Stay Safe UA, and launching a £50,000 campaign with UKtoUkraine.

Covers’ Mercedes rigid crane lorries, plus a forklift and tracked recovery vehicle, will be making the journey to be handed over on the Poland  and Ukraine border in August.

Covers chairman, Rupert Green, said: “These trucks will play a crucial role in supplying vital aid to the civilians near the frontlines in Ukraine and local hospitals. Their cranes will enable Stay Safe UA to be much more effective and help other aid organisations.

“One will carry a mobile shower unit, one a mobile bakery and the other will be used for transporting rescue vehicles, generators and aid pallets wherever the need is greatest.”

The Chichester Covers branch and UKtoUkraine are asking for support; to fund the cost of the journey to Ukraine, to buy a 20ft container and a front-end loader with angle broom.

The fund is also for urgently-needed equipment and supplies like mortuary freezers, water transfer pumps, materials for temporary windows and medical supplies.

Green added: “The total estimated cost for this is £50,000. Please give generously to help these vital humanitarian initiatives in Ukraine.”
