Property Tribes director Nick Tadd is urging the sector to get behind his one-man humanitarian mission to deliver supplies to Ukrainian refugees.
Tadd is driving to the Ukrainian border in Poland with a car and trailer loaded up with water, baby milk, non-perishable foods and hygiene products, as well as warm clothes that he plans to distribute. He’s making the spontaneous 20-hour solo trip after feeling compelled to act and has already raised £2,395 of the £3,000 target on his Just Giving page.
He plans to use the money to buy more supplies once he arrives in Poland, Tadd tells LandlordZONE, after only grabbing a few hours’ sleep in his car on the mammoth journey. “I hope to hook up with an NGO when I get there and am going to offer my services and hang around for a few days,” he says. “If they can tell me what they need I will try and source it, perhaps in a Polish cash & carry, and will keep going backwards and forwards until I’ve exhausted it.”
Tadd admits he has never done anything like this before but realised that by making the trip himself, 100% of funds raised would go direct to refugees. And while he doesn’t think it will be dangerous, he admits the experience will probably be emotional.
“Some remarkable things have happened since I set off yesterday – the momentum behind this has been quite humbling,” he adds. “Platinum Property Partners donated £1,000 to get the mission underway and I know there’s a huge groundswell of people wanting to do something, so please give whatever you can,” he urges LandlordZONE readers. “Every penny raised will go to assisting the Ukrainian refugees.”
