Magdalena Kwiecińska thanked the Banbury area public for their fantastic response to the appeal for medical needs, food, baby and maternity items, clothing and other supplies to help efforts in Poland and other countries bordering Ukraine where some two million refugees have fled.
Mrs Kwiecińska placed photos and a video of the lorry's departure from the Magenta storage depot on the Volunteers of Banbury for Ukraine/Wolontariusze Banbury dla Ukrainy Facebook page, saying Banbury had achieved a great deal.
"I would like to thanks every volunteer who worked with us over the last three weeks," she said. "I am extremely proud of you. We achieved so much so far and we are not planning to stop."
She paid tribute to those who had given up their weekend and worked tirelessly loading the lorry.
"Thank you for your hard work and please stay with us. Together we will make this world better place," she said.
