Hampshire couple have set off in their motorhome with “literally a tonne of sweets” to offer assistance to people fleeing Ukraine.

Laura Rice, 62, and her husband Ken, 65, from Andover, set off in Molly the motorhome on Saturday with the intention of reaching the border between Ukraine and Poland.

They have taken tea, coffee and food as well as warm clothing, and said they will offer lifts as well as the use of their shower to those who need it.

“We’ve always said to each other we’d love to give back to society,” Laura told the PA news agency.

“Because we feel that we’ve really had a lovely life. And life has been good to us.

“Why don’t we just go and take our motorhome, which is called Molly, (and) the three of us go and see what we can do?

“We also do have a hot shower in our van – we want to get there and say to people ‘what is it that you’re needing at this moment in time?’

“Whatever they need or transportation they want, to get from one site to another place in Poland, we put them in the van and take them.”

More than 1.5 million refugees have now crossed from Ukraine into neighbouring countries since the Russian invasion began, the head of the UN Refugee Agency has said.

Filippo Grandi, the UN high commissioner for refugees, tweeted on Sunday that it is “the fastest growing refugee crisis in Europe since World War II”.

Laura and her husband, who are aiming to reach the city of Przemysl in south-east Poland, contacted Veterans In Action – a charity which helps veterans – to get an idea of where to go and what to take.

With the help of neighbours they have been able to get hold of plenty of warm clothing such as hats and scarves to distribute.
