VGC has been fundraising in order to provide urgent supplies to those most affected by the war in Ukraine. This month, we transported goods to 3 charities thanks to the donations of staff and suppliers alike.
We received generous donations from staff in our head office in Ruislip as well as Solihull. Alongside this, we received substantial donations from suppliers; keyline, RISBY Air Conditioning, Storm Technologies, Safeaid, and Scott Parnell. Donations ranged from PPE, toiletries, clothing, blankets, footwear, non-perishables, and rucksacks.
On 12 April, VGC Logistics Driver, Eamonn Duff, then transported the goods to the relevant charities for delivery to Ukraine.
The donations have been sent to the most affected areas in Kyiv and the Western parts of the country, specifically the Ivano Frankivks and Lviv regions, where thousands of refugees have been relocated in order to escape the most seriously impacted areas in Ukraine.
We are still accepting donations at our Cardinal House and Solihull offices, as well as our Uxbridge depot for larger items.

You can drop in items for our collection during office hours – Monday to Friday 08.30 – 17.30 (16.00 Friday). In particular we are still in need of generators/lighting, women’s sanitary products or other personal hygiene items, and non-perishables. Many thanks in advance for any support you can give – no matter how big or small.
