With the ongoing situation in Ukraine, C & D South West has recently been talking with one of their longstanding clients Hippychick to work together in supporting getting supplies to Ukraine during these dreadful times.

Hippychick Ltd has been dealing with Meg Hawkyard and relevant charities who are coordinating the logistics to get the aid where it is needed most during these awful circumstances.

As such, C & D South West has decided to support by providing the use of their Hippychick dual-branded curtain-sided trailer and a full tank of fuel in order to get urgent aid across to Ukraine.

With the help of other amazing volunteers and another company supplying the tractor unit, next Saturday the 12th of March the trailer will be loaded full of essential supplies and taken to Krakow in Poland.

Once in Poland, a wonderful lady called Faye, who is based in Krakow is kindly arranging the onwards distribution of the items and liaising with sources on her side to keep us up to date with what we need.

With hundreds of thousands of people displaced from their homes having fled with minimal physical belongings, this mission is trying to provide an opportunity to people to be able to give what they can, to assist the people that have been so sadly negatively affected.

C & D South West will be dropping the trailer at Hippychick next Thursday and have been advised of the below list of items that have been requested for donations from the aid charities.


Items needed include:

– Complete first aid kits, plasters, bandages, sudocream, burn relief gel, ibuprofen, paracetamol and Calpol for babies

– Camping mats

– Sleeping bags

– Warm blankets, but not duvets

– Thermal clothes and underwear of different sizes, both child and adult

– Hot water bottles

– Baby food and baby formula. breast pumps and sterilisers

– Nappies, various sizes

– Sanitary products for women

-Toothbrushes and toothpaste

– Wet wipes

– Batteries


If anyone has anything they are able to donate and bring to the C&D South West depot at Chard, Somerset, TA20 2BB before Thursday 10th March 2022 it would be greatly appreciated to support where it is needed in these difficult times.
