Ali Piper, Chair of PUMA. Go SOUTH WEST

As reported in ‘News in Brief’ just before Christmas, Go South West recently sent a coach full of aid to Ukraine. The company has sent further details about the trip, which saw two drivers to take a coach load of vital aid to those on the front line in Ukraine. Local charity Plymouth Ukraine Medical Aid (PUMA) had already taken medical supplies to Ukraine, and had also been collecting other supplies such as food, clothing and Christmas gifts for children, which they delivered to Ukraine to make sure it found its way into the hands of those who need it most.

Ali Piper, Chair of PUMA, has been on previous visits to Ukraine and said: “The people in Ukraine don’t just need medical aid, they need everything, so it’s grown into this Christmas appeal. We make a big impact for the people we see – we see their faces, we see pictures of the donations in use. It’s rewarding, you can see you’re making an impact. Being a small organisation means we can make sure aid gets to where it’s intended.”
