An aid support initiative in the Moorlands has helped a similar scheme with its latest humanitarian aid campaign. The Leek and Cheddleton Aid Support for Ukraine Centre, which is based at Bank House in Leek, has provided lots of much-needed medical supplies and other donations, which were picked up by representatives of Ambulance Aid yesterday (Tuesday, May 3) and are now making their way to help those affected by war-torn Ukraine.

An aid support initiative in the Moorlands has helped a similar scheme with its latest humanitarian aid campaign.

The Leek and Cheddleton Aid Support for Ukraine Centre, which is based at Bank House in Leek, has provided lots of much-needed medical supplies and other donations, which were picked up by representatives of Ambulance Aid yesterday (Tuesday, May 3) and are now making their way to help those affected by war-torn Ukraine.

Ambulance Aid is a non-profit making, group of volunteers delivering ambulances and medical aid to the Ukraine.
A spokesman said: “We are all volunteers and every penny raised will go directly to supporting this venture, we purchased the first two ambulances with our own money and funded a further one from generous donations, these have been filled with medical supplies and already delivered to Kyiv in Ukraine.
“We want to fund as many more Ambulances as possible to aid the Ukrainian people. All donations go directly to where they are needed.”

The Leek aid support initiative, which is being led by Leek town councillor Roy Molson with a band of volunteers, is also raising funds to help purchase ambulances for Ukraine.

Cllr Molson said: “The campaign to raise funds for an ambulance and medical equipment has been stepped up this week.

An ambulance has visited the Leek and Cheddleton Aid Support for Ukraine Centre at Bank House, St Edward Street in Leek to collect much needed medical supplies.

This is a small contribution to a much greater need, which is why we are appealing for donations to help us reach our target of £10,000.”

Roy added: “Hundreds of military and civilians are injured and dying for lack of medical support.

Remember every pound donated goes towards the project, no deductions for executives, fancy buildings or company cars.

People can donate by calling at Bank House on a Wednesday or Friday between 10am and 1pm or through our Crowdfunder at www.crowdfunder.co.uk/p/leek-and-cheddleton-aid-support-for-ukraine-1.

Please donate today, time is now, need is now, help is for now.”

The aid support initiative is also collecting donations of items, in particular: trauma first aid gear, celox, liquid soap, respirators, defibs, tourniquets, bandages.
