A bus bound for the Ukrainian border is accepting donations at Blackpool Shopping centre until 5pm
Cronin’s Coaches in partnership with Dennehy Transport will be delivering aid to Ukrainian refugees and will be returning to Ireland with 40 women and children who were forced to leave their country due to the Russian invasion.
Three drivers will be making the 2,500 kilometre journey on Tuesday and will be returning on the following Monday…
The 40 women and children will then be given accommodation locally in a partnership with migrant advocacy group NASC.
Speaking to RedFM News, Niall Cronin from Cronin’s Coaches outlines what people can donate today
“We’ll prioritise what they’re looking for most so single use medical supplies is a big thing. It’s currently -1 in Poland, and its due to get colder so they’re looking for people to donate, blankets, sleeping bags. We are looking for kids clothes in particular, a lot of the people that are now crossing the border, are people that have nothing, arriving with just the clothes on their back and a bag in their hand. What we thing we’re going to see at the border is going to be very tough, but these are the people who need our help the most”
