Midwich, the global audio visual distributor, has collected more than 50 boxes and bags of donations from employees to help support donation efforts for those impacted by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Communications and PR manager at Midwich, Ben Thompson, organised the appeal saying that the company "stands with the people of Ukraine”. Thompson adds: "I spotted a Facebook post from a local church calling for vital supplies for women and children escaping the conflict in Ukraine.

“I knew my colleagues at Midwich would support the appeal and within days, we had a mountain of the essential items collected, and it just kept coming. People were going out in their lunchbreak to buy items to donate, which is amazing."  

Midwich employees collected the donations over a four-day period in partnership with a Norfolk based Polish charitable association. A school minibus was loaned to Midwich from a local school, which was used to transport the donations from Midwich’s head office to the local church, ahead of the journey to Poland.

A team of volunteers at Midwich sorted the various donations into boxes and bags. The essentials included warm clothes, dry blankets, sanitary products, torches, medical supplies and sleeping bags.
