This Week at SHAP

We've had a busy few days here at SHAP following the unveiling of the Children's Story Bus.

On Sunday morning, SHAP was in action collecting a trailer from Wokingham - which will be used to transport aid into Ukraine - for colleagues from the North of England.

In the afternoon SHAP helped a Ukrainian mother and daughter move house. Beds, a wardrobe, fridge freezer and sofa were squeezed through narrow doors. With thanks to Simon and both Nicks for their invaluable help.

Today's task - to load this 40’ articulate lorry - destination Ukraine.

The loading process began at Neptune - the Swindon based kitchen and household furniture business - where 32 pallets of hygiene wipes and 2 pallets of shampoo were loaded. Neptune have been great supporters of SHAP since our formation and have stored free of charge around 750 pallets of various aid.

The lorry then headed to the SHAP warehouse where our wonderful volunteers were hard at work again on loading the lorry with over 650 boxes of aid including 50 wheelchairs and walking aids. The lorry is already on its way to Ukraine. Well done and thank you to everyone involved with this week's efforts.

To top it off, BBC Radio Wiltshire aired a lovely piece in which our very own Story Bus artist, Billy Beaumont was interviewed for his work on the mural. Click the video below to listen:
