Fire and rescue humanitarian charity seeks new van

Share this content


Operation Florian, a UK-based Fire and Rescue Service humanitarian charity, is seeking urgent donations to replace one of their two vans. The van in need of replacement has served the charity for 13 years and has come to the end of its useful life.

The van has travelled tens of thousands of miles across the country to collect equipment and served as a support vehicle for convoys to Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Macedonia, and Moldova.

Since its inception in 1995, Operation Florian has donated vehicles, equipment, supplies, and expertise to communities around the world in need. The organisation relies on donations from members and the dedication of volunteers to carry out its work.

To continue their vital work, Operation Florian is appealing to individuals and businesses to donate a van to replace the one that has reached the end of its life and enable volunteers to continue collecting donations from the North of the country for fire and rescue services worldwide in need of fire safety supplies.

Operation Florian said it is ideally looking for a hi-liner long wheel base van or a box van with a tail gate.
