An appeal has been launched in the Moorlands to purchase ambulances which will be driven out to help those affected by war-torn Ukraine.

An appeal has been launched in the Moorlands to purchase ambulances which will be driven out to help those affected by war-torn Ukraine.

The Leek and Cheddleton Aid Support for Ukraine have started a new fundraising appeal to purchase former ambulances which will be stocked with medical supplies and sent out to help those affected by the Russian invasion in Ukraine.

A spokesman for the Leek and Cheddleton Aid Support group said: “We are a group of volunteers who have been collecting and transporting aid to Zamosc, on the Polish border with the Ukraine, near to the town of Lviv.

We would like to purchase two used ambulances to equip the medical teams in the Ukraine, desperately trying to cope with the many sick and injured in and around Lviv.

Every pound donated will go to the aid work, none of us take wages, the premises have been provided free of cost by Leek Town Council.

Members of our team include, retired police officers, nursing and care staff, prison officers and NHS administrators.

Your help would be much appreciated.”

Councillor Roy Molson, who is leading the humanitarian aid support from Leek’s Bank House, said: “Leek and Cheddleton Aid Support for Ukraine, based at Bank House in St Edward Street, Leek would be able to fill two or three of these ambulances with medical equipment, kindly donated by Shrewsbury and Telford NHS Trust.

We will then deliver them to the Ukrainian medical support teams, where they can be used to help deal with the large numbers of people being injured in this awful war.

The ambulances will be sign written to acknowledge the donations from the people of Leek and Cheddleton.

If you want to support this project please contact me or pop into Bank House on a Wednesday or Friday between 10am to 1pm.

100 people giving £100 will get us started. Be ‘one in a hundred.”

Cllr Molson further told the Leek & Moorlands Echo: “The ambulance will be taken to Zamosc by us filled with medical equipment donated by Shrewsbury and Telford NHS Trust which we have at Bank House, then given to our contact there and they will take it to Ukraine hospitals for their use.

We will return to UK by air.”
