Three lorries packed with donations have made their way to Ukraine from a Wrexham organisation that’s been working hard since the beginning of the war.

The lorries carried what is thought to be around £170,000 worth of donations collected by the Polish Integration Support Centre CIC (PISC) and joins the £3 million worth already sent by the organsiation in the last year.

The appeal for donations began right after the war first broke out on February 24, 2022, and was launched by Anna Buckley, the director of PISC.

PISC CIC has since moved into a unit in Eagles Meadow as they have expanded, and are open from 9am to 5pm Monday-Friday.


PISC has now sent 82 lorries in total to Ukraine, and each one has been filled with donations from Wrexham and the wider North Wales community, as well as local companies.

Items sent included: wheelchairs, orthopedic balls, walkers on wheels and without, eight pallets of medical equipment from Bristol/London area, boxes of disposable aprons, masks, gloves, medical pallets for hospitals, pallets of clothes and bedding, blankets, sleeping bags, pallets of kids clothes, nappies, toys and mattresses.

PISC also provides services for the Polish community in Wrexham, of approximately 15,000 people, and has recently sent aid to the Turkey/Syria border following the destructive earthquakes.

If you want to volunteer, you can get in touch with PISC via telephone: 07523627826, email:, visit their website or pop into the office on Eagles Meadow.
