Great Dunmow-based transport and freight forwarding company Containerlift helps to deliver supplies to Ukrainian refugees in Poland
A transport and freight forwarding company based in Great Dunmow has been working with a charity to help deliver supplies to Ukrainian refugees in Poland.
Containerlift teamed up with Birmingham-based Mosley for Ukraine, which was set up by Polish resident Malwina James, and delivered a 40ft shipping container to their loading site to store donations of sleeping bags, medicines, first aid kits, nappies, bullet-proof vests, toothbrushes, tinned food and more.
Containerlift's managing director Joost Baker was inspired to offer the company's services free of charge after seeing the "truly shocking" scenes following Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
"Containerlift employs many Eastern Europeans across the business, including drivers and management, and my wife's grandparents were Polish and evacuated to the UK during the Second World War," he said.
"We are fully aware of the upset this is causing them and hope that they may find some comfort in knowing that the company they work for are doing their bit to help."
