CWUHA September 2014 Convoy
To: All Interested Parties - CWUHA September 2014 Convoy
We are now seeking volunteers for the CWUHA September 2014 Convoy – destination Bulgaria
• The day of departure is yet to be agreed
• The convoy will consist of 10 vehicles.
• You will be away for just over 2 weeks (but all drivers to be prepared for 3 weeks away in any event)
• Each vehicle has two drivers, so we are looking for duos.
If selected you will be provided with a vehicle, fuel card and insurances (not aid), it will be your responsibility to raise the funds and aid for your vehicle. If you work for BT or RM you will get paid release for the duration of the convoy, but be WARNED you will have to do a lot of work in your own time i.e. fundraising, collecting/buying aid, packing the aid into boxes, completing a manifest, loading your vehicle, picking up and returning your vehicle from a depot anywhere in the UK .
It’s hard but very rewarding work, and your reward is to see the smiling faces of the children you are helping.
The selection of all convoy participants is at the absolute discretion of the trustees. They will consider all applicants using the following criteria:
Business Plan: You will be required to submit a business plan that will show how you will raise the aid for your vehicle and funds to finance your ferry and your subsistence. The ferry is approx. £550 and subsistence is £500 per driver.
Volunteer Form: All drivers are required to complete a volunteer form and this can be found on
