Sam Puzey and Jack Phillips have signed up to travel 1,318 miles over 3 days across Europe with the Driving Ukraine team to deliver an ambulance that is destined for work on the Ukrainian frontline.

Jack and Sam both work for The Ambulance service full time, as emergency medical dispatchers and 999 call handlers. They are choosing to make this journey on their days off with the hope of getting aid in to the hands of those who really need it.

Any surplus funds raised will go directly towards buying more vehicles and supplies for the charity, so even once the goal is reached please feel free to still donate if you want to make a massive difference to the lives of Ukrainian people

The Invasion of Ukraine has been going on for almost 2 years now and Driving Ukraine has been running a project supplying vehicles to the Ukrainian frontline since the start www.DrivingUkraine.org

The team have transported 70+ vehicles to Ukraine since the start of the war and Sam and Jack have put their hands up to make the journey.

Alongside DrivingUkraine, Sam and Jack are raising £1600 to pay for the transport of the vehicle we’re driving from Oxfordshire, England to Lviv, Ukraine (1,300miles) and then onwards travel to Eastern Ukraine's frontline (750miles), where the vehicle will begin work. These funds will also sponsor modifications and upgrades that will make the vehicle and others on the convoy appropriate for its new life, such as Mud Terrain tyres and a camouflage paint job.
