Corporate Donations and Partnerships
The key aim of this campaign was to facilitate the donation and rapid distribution of priority aid to those most in need, within Ukraine, while providing donors and sponsors with visibility over where their donations are going and how quickly those donations can help save lives.
We provide free, reliable transportation to the donors of aid by securing UK companies and private donors to sponsor the Ukraine registered trucks on their 5,000 km round trip. Each 20 tonne truck costs between £2,350 and £2,700 depending on the time it takes to pack each truck.
Truck sponsors fund all truck distribution and logistics costs of trucks from London to Lviv. We are currently sending an average of 4 fully loaded, 20 tonne trucks from London to Lviv every week.
We’d like to thank the following donors who have sponsored trucks and / or donated aid so far :
How you can support this Campaign ?
If your organisation has a strong commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility and is looking to support the people of Ukraine, then you can support our campaign in three ways :
Corporate Brand Partnerships
British Corner Shop is the online supermarket for British food lovers and expats worldwide.
It is our mission to make it easy for anyone, no matter where they are in the world, to access the quality British products they love – in the most efficient and sustainable way possible.
Customers can choose from over 6,000 of their most loved British grocery brands, from Robinsons Squash to McVities Digestives – we can deliver them all straight to doorsteps around the globe.
We have been delivering boxes of British happiness to expats and lovers of British food since 1999 and have sent over five million products to 140 countries worldwide.
Why are we working with Climate Action
As an international exporter of British food and drink, we were investigating ways in which we could help the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine but were struggling to deliver what was needed due to post-Brexit import restrictions.
When we were approached by Climate Action to support their Ukraine 20-20-20 campaign, we were thrilled to hear they’d already developed a reliable, cost effective and transparent distribution channel from London to those that need it most in Ukraine – eliminating many of the barriers we were facing. So, getting involved was a no-brainer to us.
Visibility and Accountability
We can help you to deliver your donated aid directly into Ukraine, using our reliable logistics and distribution network. It takes our trucks 3 – 4 days to drive the 2,500km from London to Lviv.
This means that for priority aid items (food, medicine, hygiene products), we are aiming to get aid delivered into the hands of those that need it most, within 6 – 7 days.
We provide regular tracking updates to all corporate donors and truck sponsors, via the Truck Tracker page on our website. We are working very closely with the local Charitable Foundation, Humanitarian Initiatives, who are able to provide us with trusted onward distribution, supported by constant feedback, including photos and videos of aid being offloaded in Lviv and then being distributed to recipients in cities and regions right across Ukraine.
Please note – We cannot guarantee when donated aid will arrive in Lviv, or when or where it will be distributed within Ukraine.
