Just been to @BlackpoolFood Bank to drop off everyone’s kind donations. They are going straight into food parcels for hundreds of families across Blackpool 🧡 We will have another drop off point next week so please keep an eye out for the day and time.
I've put £1million in a fund to provide grants of £5k - £20k to small UK charities who are doing/want to do immediate Coronavirus poverty relief. Please share to let any charities who may want to apply know. Full info: https://blog.moneysavingexpert.com/2020/03/i-m-making-p1m-available-to-fund-urgent-small-charity-coronaviru/
In-light of the worsing situtation concering the Coronavirus and the closing of borders we have taken the decsion to cancel the May convoy to Moldava. We are still looking to run a convoy in Sept, but this will be dependent on significant improvements in the current situation.
We are in desperate need of some storage space in the North East or North West. Can you help?
As ever, brilliant work by CWUHA (Communication Workers Union Humanitarian Aid) and some stunning images - particularly love this 👇🏾
A very moving day, visiting the Excel Education Foundation Project in Tanzania, which supports vulnerable families in need, to sponsor children through school and into college. What an honour to be invited into some of these families' humble homes 💞
We went to visit the families of some the Tanzania children sponsored by CWUHA . . . We cannot describe how heart breaking, but also heartwarming this was 💔💞💖
Today’s the day my Dad starts his journey to Tanzania with @cwuha to do more work on the schools the charity have helped build and fund over recent years. If anyone is interested in the amazing work they do please go take a look! Safe journey @lennycrook https://www.cwuha.org/our-projects/

Sounds like the Maldova humanitarian aid trip has been truly inspirational and humbling - I can't wait to get a full report on your return comrade.
As the June 19 Convoy draws to an end we would like to thank @RoyalMail @eir for loaning us vehicles & drivers @CWUnews @CWU @BTGroup for releasing their employees. Companies like @Pellacraft1 for donating goodies. You all have massive ❤❤ & together we delivered 100's 😁😁😁
CWUHA often supports other children's charities like Friends of Chernobyl who organised for 17 kids from Chernobyl to visit the UK. We donated towards providing lunch and @cwugmersey gave the kids goodie bags when they visited Manchester House Care Home. Top Day was had by all.
The Bread & Salt ceremony was performed by children at the centres in Moldova where our drivers delivered aid. It's was a lovely gesture and is for when important, respected, or admired guests arrive. The drivers were humbled to receive such a warm & loving welcome ❤
JUNE 19 CONVOY UPDATE ⬇️ After a job well done our intrepid Convoy Drivers are now homeward bound. With 100s of smiles 😁 & much needed aid delivered they should be proud. Thanks to @CWUnews @CWU Members & Branches. A special shout out to @MADAid1 We couldn't do it without you❤
