Here we are again. Loaded up and ready to make our way over to our friends from Caritas in Sfantu George, Romania.
In what has to be one of our largest ever trips undertaken we are very proud and excited to be taking over £2,000,000 worth of much needed humanitarian aid. This spread over 5 Lorries gives us a staggering combined total load equalling a massive 93 TONS of goods.
Aiding our trustees, Mark Murphy (Wetheralds Painters & Decorators LTD), Jamie Search and Charlie Lister (Both of William G Search Ltd), tackle this mammoth 4,500km round trip are our volunteers:
Graham Nixon – Nixon Hire, Newcastle.
Guy Hudson – Lynx Clothing, Harrogate.
Terry Roscoe – Central Catering Services, Wigan.
Ian McKenzie, Harrogate.
Andrew Hillas, Otley.
Gary Dooley – Pure Design, Leeds
Terry Mead – TPA Trakway, Nottingham.
Recentley our cause has been lucky enough to attract quite a bit of media coverage. With our own trustee and founder Mark Murphy being asked to tell his side of the story to the BBC. To read his views on why it is essential to continue with these efforts to provide a better quality of life for the less fortunate please follow this link: BBC Website.
Our Trustees would also like to offer a big THANK YOU to the following for their kind Donations and continued support. Without this help we would not be in the position that we are today where we can provide these essential items for the people who need it the most.
