The dedicated employees of national training provider, Learning Curve Group (LCG), donate hundreds of supplies to be delivered to the Ukraine border.
As the conflict in Ukraine continues, LCG is exceptionally aware of the responsibility they have as a large business to do what they can to make an impact and support the people of Ukraine who are going through this terrible time.
The Purple People across LCG and MPCT – Motivational Preparation College for Training – donated a huge amount of supplies to support the people of Ukraine. These donations include essential items such as thermal clothes, food, sanitary products and blankets.
MPCT CEO, Huw Lewis MBE, and Logistics Manager, Allan Peet, drove to the border of Ukraine on the 1st of April to deliver the supplies donated by the dedicated staff.
The journey was difficult thanks to the knock-on effect the conflict has had on transport infrastructure across Europe, coupled with long waits on the Ukrainian border itself. However, those difficulties were pale in comparison to the suffering currently endured by millions of Ukrainians. Therefore, the trip was worth every moment in order to ensure every item donated made it to Lviv, from where it was packed into vehicles by those already inside the country making the brave passage into those areas where the aid is most needed.
The pair returned safely on Tuesday, and Huw Lewis MBE said: “The generous donations of humanitarian aid you all kindly donated to us was delivered to Vyshhorod, and then transferred on to Buchin the Kyiv region. Combined with other partners, the total delivery included 116 boxes of food and 70 boxes of personal hygiene products.”
MPCT Logistics Manager Allan Peet added: “The trip was of course fulfilling on a personal level, and it was an eye-opening experience to be in such an environment from a civilian perspective, having been involved in humanitarian missions on many occasions during my time serving in the Armed Forces. However, what I saw when we arrived at Lviv to drop off the goods was extremely humbling – especially those young people who were taking the deliveries onwards to the front line in Kyiv, risking their own lives in order to assist their fellow citizens.”
MPCT joined the Learning Curve Group family in November 2011 after successful acquisition to expand their current pre-uniformed services provision. MPCT has helped tens of thousands of school leavers gain the practical and academic skills they need for both civilian and military careers. It is essential that any business that LCG brings into their purple family shares the same values and purpose so that they can come together to achieve great things, like this operation to donate supplies to Ukraine.
