Following an outpouring of support for its Christmas present appeal, LKQ Euro Car Parts has sent a lorry load of Christmas presents to Ukraine. The presents will be driven from Tamworth to Poland where they will be delivered to nuns from the congregation of St Joseph, who run nurseries and a care home in Ukraine.
The firm had previously delivered medicine and hygiene products to hospitals in the Ukraine, and to the front line.
Richard Morgan, Chief Operating Officer at LKQ Euro Car Parts, said: “It’s heart-warming and inspiring to see how our colleagues have gone above and beyond to donate Christmas gifts, exceeding our original target by so much that we had to change our plans to transport them all. We hope that these presents will help put a smile on the children’s faces this Christmas.”
The appeal was also supported by a number of LKQ Euro Car Parts’ partners, suppliers, and local businesses, including ATS, Klarius, National Refrigerant, Halfords, heuts.nl, Tamworth Fishing Tackle, Boden, Help and Hope, Kiedron MTD, LKQ Elit, Caritas Poland, Polish firefighters from Lezajsk, and the Polish Centre in Leamington Spa.
