MANY thanks for the coverage (LET, September 27) of my recent trip to the Ukraine with humanitarian aid given by Lancashire people.

The charity, International Aid Trust, works so hard to ensure all donations reach their destination and I can promise they really do and make a real difference.

I thank the many readers who have contacted me and the charity to offer help. It's all been marvellous and lives have been saved.
