Brave mobile mechanics are preparing to leave for Ukraine this week with employees driving a coach of volunteer paramedics and nurses into the war-torn country.
Arthur Smith from Kent-based Patrol will be driving the coach, while a series of its vehicles plus ambulances will be joining the convoy.
The company, based in Tonbridge, is fundraising and collecting medical equipment to take to Ukraine, working alongside Emergency First.
Mechanic Smith told ITV News: ‘I’ve never done anything like this at all.’
He explained: ‘We had a few spare vehicles and some drivers that had less to do in the next few weeks.
‘So we decided to use those vehicles and the time that we had to go out and help where we could.’
Once the coach has arrived in Ukraine, it will collect children from orphanages and take them to Poland.
