TPN have received a letter of thanks, and an update, from the director of the Hotel Maria Helena, who are hosting approximately 500 Ukrainian refugees in their three locations in Poland.
Chcielibyśmy bardzo podziękować The Pallet Network za pomoc i otrzymane dary.
Przekazane przez Państwa artykuły i produkty ułatwiają nam w dużym stopniu prowadzenie działalności charytatywnej i pomocowej na szerszą skalę. Przyczyniają się one do wielu szczerych uśmiechów naszych podopiecznych oraz ich ogromnej wdzięczności.
Bardzo doceniamy fakt, że po tym, jak minęła pierwsza duża fala pomocy, Państwo pozostali z nami i nie zapomnieli o naszych podopiecznych. Dzięki takim działaniom ich życie czynimy lepszym, spokojniejszym, łatwiejszym i pełnym nadziei. Jeśli są Państwo zainteresowani tym, co dzieje się u naszych podopiecznych, to już śpieszymy z aktualnymi informacjami.
Na tę chwilę przebywa w naszych trzech hotelach: Marii w Wałbrzychu, Marii Antoniny w Zagórzu Śląskim oraz Marii Heleny w Szczawnie Zdroju około 500 uchodźców ukraińskich. Część osób, która przebywała w naszych obiektach wróciła na teren Ukrainy do swoich domów i rodzin, część zaś usamodzielniła się już na terenie Polski – wynajmują mieszkania, znaleźli pracę, dzieci chodzą do szkoły. Zdarzają się jednak także takie momenty, w których goście, którzy mieszkali u nas jakiś czas temu, powracają w nasze progi – z różnych powodów.
My w dalszym ciągu prowadzimy akcję pomocową, w dalszym ciągu przyjmujemy pod opiekę nowych uchodźców, ciągle szukamy nowych rozwiązań i przygotowujemy nowe pomieszczenia na pobyt długoterminowy dla wszystkich, którzy potrzebują pomocy.
W dniu jutrzejszym tj. 01.06 z okazji Dnia Dziecka organizujemy dla naszych pociech wspaniałą imprezę z wieloma atrakcjami – jedną z nich będzie rozdawanie prezentów i paczek, z których wiele pochodzi właśnie z Państwa darów. Na pewno będzie mnóstwo radości i zabawy oraz dużo uśmiechów. ZA TO WSZYSTKO BARDZO PAŃSTWU DZIĘKUJEMY.

At the moment, in our three hotels: Maria in Wałbrzych,Maria Antonina in Zagórze Śląskie and Maria Helena in Szczawno Zdrój stayingabout 500 Ukrainian refugees. Some people who stayedin our facilities returned to Ukraine to their homes andfamilies, while some have become independent in Poland –they rent flats, found a job, children go to school.
However, there are also times when the guests wholived with us some times ago, are returning to our doorstep –various reasons.We are still running the help campaign, stillwe take care of new refugees, we are constantly looking for new onessolutions and we prepare new rooms for a long-term stayfor all who need help.

It will definitely be a lot of fun and funand a lot of smiles. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR ALL OF THIS.
TPN have received a letter of thanks from a hotel group in Poland who are hosting hundreds of refugees from Ukraine. Once again, thank you all for your generous contributions – in offering goods, transport, or assistance of any kind. As you will ready, it’s very much appreciated.
Thanks a lot for your help. The gifts made an impression. Amazing amounts.
With our group, everything will come in handy. We have almost a month of our guests and we don’t know how long it will take.
We also send transports by buses with gifts to Ukraine and on the way back new people come to us.
Chcielibyśmy bardzo podziękować The Pallet Network za Państwa pomoc oraz wsparcie w realizacji szczytnego celu, jakim jest pomoc osobom potrzebującym opieki i wsparcia. Dziękujemy za wielkie i otwarte serca, za zrozumienie, empatię i troskę.
Wysłana do nas tak duża ilość darów, bardzo nam pomoże w naszej codzienności.
Obecnie nasza działalność skierowana jest na pomoc uchodźcom z Ukrainy. W naszych trzech hotelach: Marii w Wałbrzychu, Marii Helenie w Szczawnie Zdroju oraz Marii Antoninie w Zagórzu Śląskim przyjęliśmy ponad 700 gości, którym staramy się zapewnić namiastkę domu rodzinnego oraz spokojny sen, bez odgłosu bomb, bez lęku i niepokoju. Dokładamy wszelkich starań, aby zarówno dorośli jak i dzieci, doświadczyły naszej prawdziwej polskiej gościnności, w tym skomplikowanym i bardzo ciężkim dla nich czasie.
Droga do normalności jest jeszcze daleka, ale mamy to szczęście, że wiele osób, firm i podmiotów gospodarczych włącza się aktywnie w działalność pomocową.
Jeszcze raz zatem dziękujemy za każdy gest dobrej woli, za wsparcie finansowe, rzeczowe, za poświęcony czas, za efektywną współpracę i dzielenie się dobrem. Jesteśmy wdzięczni i wzruszeni Państwa zaangażowaniem.
Dziękujemy za pomoc w pomaganiu! Pamiętajmy, że dobro powraca!
Ladies and gentlemen,
We would like to thank The Pallet Network for your help and support in achieving the noble goal of helping people in need of care and support. Thank you for big and open hearts, for understanding, empathy and care.
Such a large number of gifts sent to us will help us a lot in our everyday life.
Currently, our activity is focused on helping refugees from Ukraine. In our three hotels: Maria Helena in Wałbrzych, Maria Helena in Szczawno Zdrój and Maria Antonin in Zagórze Śląskie, we have welcomed over 700 guests, for whom we try to provide a substitute for a family home and a peaceful sleep, without the sound of bombs, without fear and anxiety. We make every effort to ensure that both adults and children experience our true Polish hospitality, in this complicated and very difficult time for them.
The road to normalcy is still a long way, but we are lucky that many people, companies and economic entities are actively involved in aid activities.
Therefore, we would like to thank you once again for every gesture of goodwill, for financial and material support, for your time, for effective cooperation and sharing good. We are grateful and touched by your commitment.
Thank you for helping us! Remember that good returns! Violetta Mercik
Today humanitarian aid for Ukraine arrived in Płock from Irish companies. The 26 pallets include medicines, food, cleaning products & more. Thanks to TPN for organizing the collection and transport & to all donors for the aid provided. #StandUpForUkraine
Our first HGV load with essential goods for Ukraine arrives at its destination in Poland today. Here are some of the goods ready to be shipped from our Hub in Dublin 15. There are now 2.5 million refugees who have passed Ukraine’s borders. #StandUpForUkraine
Humanitarian aid has started to arrive at the Hub in Dublin from our TPN Partners around the country. Everyone here at TPN is so heartened by the incredible response we’ve seen from our network, our customers, and the general public in Ireland. The quality of goods we’re receiving has to be acknowledged. Thank you so much from everyone at TPN. We will endeavour to get this out as swiftly and efficiently as we can to the locations that need it – on the borders, and in the towns receiving vast numbers of refugees fleeing the Russian invasion.
Due to the invasion of Ukraine, and the thousands of refugees it has created, there is a humanitarian crisis developing on the Ukrainian border. In an effort to help, Hendrick European, Virginia Transport, twenty members of The Pallet Network Ireland, and other Irish hauliers are arranging for the collection of essential goods to be shipped from Ireland to a distribution centre (Hrubieszowski Ośrodek Sportu i Rekreacji) in Hrubieszow, a town beside the Ukrainian border in Poland.
Chief Executive of TPN Ireland and Independent Express Cargo Eamon Sullivan says: “No one can fail to be moved by the needless suffering of so many women and children fleeing war. Those of us in logistics have the resources, the contacts and the ability to help them and it is incumbent upon us to do so. We thank our customers in advance for their generosity in helping us provide some relief to these refugees.”
TPN Ireland is not at this stage requesting support from its English, Welsh or Scottish counterparts in THE Pallet Network, in case goods are delayed by the need for Customs clearances.
It seems Brexit will never be quite “done”. It is certainly set to have ongoing changes on customs regulations and ever-changing stages of implementation throughout 2022.
While the Northern Ireland protocol continues to be an area of dispute between the UK and the EU, there won’t be a definite settled position on customs processes for us.
While there are no customs processes between Ireland North and South, there should not be any freight from the UK mainland destined for the ROI (Republic of Ireland) travelling via Northern Ireland unless full customs clearance is effected when passing through Northern Ireland.
GB shipments coming into the ROI have full and complete processes now in place and these should not have any further changes relating to Brexit.
However this is not the case at UK ports for exports coming from the ROI. All changes to ROI imports are postponed for the moment but may be implemented at short notice anytime.
While the N IRL protocol is still being argued, a different timetable is being applied to imports into GB from the ROI as compared to the rest of the EU.
At different stages throughout 2022 GB plans to start implementing import controls on food and agri products from the EU that involve health and veterinary certs not required up to now.
Bear in mind the below timetable only applies to shipments from the rest of the EU, not ROI, to GB
Extract from Revenue and Customs sited below set out the timetables and some details :
“UK Import and Customs Controls due to be introduced on 1 January 2022 have been postponed for goods from Ireland
On 15 December, the UK government announced that they are, “to extend, on a temporary basis, the current arrangements for moving goods from the island of Ireland to Great Britain . . . goods moving from the island of Ireland directly to Great Britain will continue to do so on the basis of the arrangements that apply currently, until further notice; and will not, for now, be affected by the changes being introduced on 1 January for all other inbound goods.” This means, until further notice, for goods moving from Ireland directly to Great Britain there is:
no requirement for pre-notification of SPS products. (It is important to note that only applies for those exporters that are not already subject to pre-notification requirements)
no requirement for pre-lodgement of UK customs declarations
no requirement for compliance with full UK import controls and
no requirement to use the Goods Vehicle Movement Service (GVMS).
The requirement for compliance with existing requirements for full EU export formalities and use of the PBN for goods moving via RoRo ferry, as well as the existing UK formalities in relation to controlled goods e.g. alcohol, continues and are not changed. “ “ Preparing for the introduction of changes The postponement of the changes due to take effect on 1 January 2022 is temporary. Irish businesses exporting to the UK are strongly advised to continue to prepare and be ready for the full introduction of UK import and customs controls in 2022. Irish businesses should be mindful that the lead-in time to their commencement once announced, could be quite short.”
Below is an update from HM customs in GB
