Silverlake Automotive Recycling has sent more than 1,500 recycled vehicle first aid kits to Ukraine since first partnering with UK Sunflower Aid in May last year.

Silverlake, which process over 30,000 salvage vehicles at its Shefield site per year, has also fuelled more than 10 UK Sunflower Aid vans over multiple trips.

Paul Fullick of UK Sunflower Aid said: “We formed UK Sunflower Aid and started taking aid to Ukraine a week after Russia invaded Kiev; it seemed like the right thing to do.

“More than two years later we have moved almost 600 tons of humanitarian aid and medical supplies directly to the people and hospitals in Ukraine.

“The support we get from organisations like Silverlake is essential and helps us to deliver this life saving aid.

“Thank you to everyone at Silverlake who help keep the wheels moving, the people of Ukraine are extremely grateful.”

Allen Prebble, MD at Silverlake, said: “We know Paul from our sponsorship of the Silverlake C1 Racing Series. He is a racing driver with Team BRIT, a disability motorsport team that races in the Series.

“When I heard what he was doing to support the people of Ukraine I knew Silverlake had to get involved. Recycling vehicle first aid kits was a meaningful and valuable way we could help, as well as supplying tanks of fuel for the aid vans setting out for the Ukraine border.

“UK Sunflower Aid has achieved so much and we are proud to be helping them to make a difference to those caught in the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.”
