British farmers send lorries of aid to Ukraine

A Cambridgeshire farming family is helping to send 25 lorry loads of food, warm clothing and medical supplies to Ukrainian refugees. As Ed Henderson reports for Farmers Weekly, Craig Taylor and his cousin Ross Taylor, who farm in the Fens at Pymoor, have joined forces with local organisations and businesses to create Ukraine Lifeline.

The Taylors are working with registered charity Cambridgeshire Search and Rescue (CamSAR), haulier Buffaload Logistics and fresh produce company G’s Fresh to send the aid to a distribution centre in Poland.

Food has also been donated by Cambridgeshire grower Glebe Farm. “We have now received aid donations worth around £2m and have enough to send about 25 lorry loads in total,” Mr Taylor told Farmers Weekly.

Elsewhere, a convoy of three artic lorries has left County Durham, with aid to help thousands of Ukrainian refugees in Poland.
