Pall-Ex Group has launched the #PLXUKRAINE appeal to support those affected by the conflict in eastern Europe.
The appeal tasks Pall-Ex Group’s UK and Irish membership, comprising over 165 independent transport businesses, to raise £1,000 (or equivalent) each in any way they can.
All the funds raised by the appeal will then be aggregated by Pall-Ex Group and donated to the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) to support the ongoing humanitarian work being carried out for those affected by the conflict in Ukraine.
The DEC brings together 15 leading charities in the UK to provide an efficient and effective way of raising funds to deliver vital aid to victims of crises overseas.
As people flea Ukraine with only the possessions they can carry, DEC charities and local partners are ensuring these people have food, water, warm clothes and the medicines they need.
Kevin Buchanan, Pall-Ex Group CEO developed the idea for the #PLXUKRAINE appeal. He comments: “We have all seen the horrendous developments in Ukraine over the last few weeks, with millions of people being forced to move further west or even leave the country.
“The DEC carries out incredible work so we must use our platform to support it as much as possible. Pall-Ex Group has a network of over 165 independent business which we have the ability to call into action and unite to support this very worthy cause.
“#PLXUKRAINE shows that if we all work together, small actions can achieve incredible results.”
