On Thursday 28th April, we accomplished our mission of bringing home 91 refugees to safety from Ukraine in two coaches, accompanied by translators, a medic and volunteers. But it doesn’t just stop there. The need and demand for transport is still very real (even if aren’t hearing about the humanitarian crisis on the news as much right now). 

Coaches2Ukraine is in the process of arranging the next transport, and we need your help. We have set up a Go Fund Me page to help fund the next trip. Please donate as little or as much as you can, and share the link and our story with your business contacts, family and friends to help us reach our target and help more refugees reach safety.


Coaches2Ukraine, who sponsored and supported organising the trip, was created by local business owners and volunteers with the original idea being that of Malcolm Palmer, Managing Partner here at A4G. We also had a number of their team working hard behind the scenes to help make the trip a success.

The idea came to Malcolm after being fixated on the events in Ukraine since the Russian invasion and the humanitarian crisis emerging in bordering countries, especially Poland. He said he had got involved as there didn’t seem to be any forward planning or any central organisations that were linking people together.

On Thursday 28th April, 2 coaches organised by Coaches2Ukraine left an exhibition centre / refugee camp (Ptak Expo) located about 25 minutes from the centre of Warsaw. On board were 91 Ukrainian Refugees accompanied by translators, a medic and volunteers.

The coaches arrived about 11am on Friday 29th April at Hartley Country Club near Longfield in Kent and were greeted by their hosts, plus volunteers who provided food, drinks and toys for the children who had made the near 1,000-mile trip from Warsaw.

We also helped to bring a further 27 guests with pets to the UK on 19th May, thanks to the hard work of Black Taxis for Ukraine.

Malcolm is now hoping now that the Coaches2Ukraine model can be used for others to run their own coach or coaches and help save more refugees, or to continue fundraising more money to organise the next trip.
