On the road again to deliver Ukraine aid

[ June 13, 2022   //   ]

Sussex trucker Richard Topping has continued his mercy mission to Ukraine after embarking on two more trips to deliver vital aid.

Mr Topping, founder and managing director of Pallet-Track member E&R Freight in Crawley, delivered much-needed supplies to an area south of Lviv, before returning to the Moldovan/Romanian border with aid for deaf Ukrainian refugees.

It is the third time this year he has taken to the road in support of Ukraine, after he previously delivered more than 100 pallets of aid on behalf of all UK pallet networks and the Association of Pallet Networks (APN).

Wolverhampton-based Pallet-Track network gathered donations at its central hub including formula milk, nappies, baby food, personal hygiene products and first aid equipment.

Richard topping is no stranger to mercy missions, having taken supplies to war-torn Kosovo during the third Balkan war in 2001.

Caroline Green, chief executive of Pallet-Track, said: “The selfless actions of Richard and the E&R Freight team are a shining example to us all. They represent the very best of our industry, which is uniquely-placed to give practical support in and around Ukraine at the point of need.”
