Story

As part of the Charity's 30 year celebrations two of our supporters from the North East, John Burns, who is also a Trustee, and Bryn Clode are undertaking to recreate the aid runs of the early days of the Charity. They are driving aid goods across to Romania in a van supplied by the company who did the same for Roy Wheeler, who is helping to organise the run, when he first went out 25 years ago.

If you are able to support us on this fund raising venture, in memory of Eddie Errington who drove one of the first vehicles to make the trip, that would be brilliant. We are looking for donors to cover the cost of the fuel, ferries and expenses, or to sponsor as many miles of the journey at £1 a mile as you feel able. By doing this we hope to cover our costs and raise up to £5,000 towards the work in Romania.
