CWUHA would like to thank all volunteers who took part in the #Sept18Convoy to Moldova. To have 12 newbies taking part was amazing. As always our friends @CWU Ireland delivered the goods! So enjoy your weekend with your families...you all deserve it. #BePartOfSomethingSpecial

Well done to the pride of @CwuScotland and #TheCWU Chris, Johnny, Kev and a photoshopped Pat 🤣 for leading the succesful @cwuha convoy to Moldova #DeliveringASmile #CWUandProud @CWUnews @DaveWardGS @CWU_AndyKerr @tkearnsy

Lenny (@lennycrook)

Sorry about the mix up, Pat has now been reinstated 😂😂

CWUHA (@cwuha)

Waiting to get on the ferry to take us home. This has definitely been an emotional 2.5 weeks. It really makes a massive difference seeing where the aid is going and I think this is something we would all want to take part in again! #BePartOfSomethingSpecial

CWUHA (@cwuha)

Fantastic to see 12 newbies from all corners of the UK and Ireland on the Sept 18 Convoy. If you are interested in taking part or want more info on how you can get involved, please email: cwuhaprojectworkers@gmail.com @CWUnews @CWU

CWUHA (@cwuha)

A big thank you to convoy newbies Rebecca & Umar for keeping us updated via our facebook page on the progress of the Sept Convoy. Some heartwarming and tearful pics. We hope to see you taking part in future projects👍 #BePartOfSomethingSpecial

Lenny (@lennycrook)

Great job lads. 🚚🚚🚚

CWUHA (@cwuha)

Every convoy needs a great leadership team to make sure the aid is delivered direct and the drivers & vehicles arrive home safely. So we just want to say a big thank you to Chris, Johnny, Kevin & Pat for leading our successful Sept 18 mission to Moldova #DelveringASmile

This time last week we visited a centre for disabled children in Chisinau. Most kids here were severely disabled due to lack of knowledge about their disabilities. This is just one of the problems @MADAid1 face.. yet looking at these kids faces you can see why they push so hard!

CWUHA (@cwuha)

While we were in Moldova the children from the Phoenix centre put on a fundraising event to raise money for days out. It was quite emotional watching them knowing the time and effort that must have gone into making it happen #BePartOfSomethingSpecial https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=380051345867334&id=1599677553624475

CWUHA (@cwuha)

This time last week we’d just arrived at the Phoenix centre to meet the children & staff. Its amazing the changes @MADAid1 has made to Moldova and seeing all the kids faces made the 4,000 miles trip worthwhile! #DelveringASmile #BePartOfSomethingSpecial @CWUnews @CWU

Have a safe journey home... you certainly delivered hundreds of smiles #CWUandProud @CWUnews @CWU @DaveWardGS @tkearnsy

CWUHA (@cwuha)

We had some gorgeous views driving through Romania yesterday! The aim today is to make it back to Kecskemét Hungary #HomewardBound #ConvoyToMoldova

CWUHA (@cwuha)

A last picture with Victoria @MADAid1 before we leave for the first leg of our journey home from Moldova! It’s amazing to see what her and her staff have accomplished in such a short space of time and it felt good knowing we were helping such a worthy cause #DeliveringASmile

MAD-Aid (@MADAid1)

Another successful CWUHA convoy! 16 drivers out of who - 13 new drivers first time in 🇲🇩 Moldova! Everyone will be back! Thank you Poliția Republicii Moldova ( dnul. Alexandru Pînzari si dnul. Ruslan) for keeping everyone safe! https://www.facebook.com/MADAidUK/videos/539599416483472/

CWUHA (@cwuha)

Thank you for looking after our drivers, especially the 13 newbies! #BePartOfSomethingSpecial

CWUHA (@cwuha)

We had our final day delivering aid to vulnerable families and said goodbye to the kids at the Phoenix centre. They gave us handmade cards thanking us for coming! 👍 #ConvoyToMoldova

CWUHA (@cwuha)

Yesterday we spent the day taking aid to a sports orphanage, disabled centre and school in Chisinau. A long and emotional day, but looking at the kids faces made it all worthwhile! #ConvoyToMoldova #DeliveringASmile

CWUHA (@cwuha)

Former convoy driver Steve Gough wearing one of our classic CWUHA T-Shirt's while on holiday. We're impressed it still fits! 😁

CWUHA (@cwuha)

Today we delivered some smiles to children in Chisanu #HeartBreaking #HeartBreaking @CWUnews @CWU

A picture paints a thousand words. It makes all the hard work worth it. Well done .

CWUHA (@cwuha)

CWUHA #DeliveringASmile and of course some sweeties! #ConvoyToMoldova @CWUnews

CWUHA (@cwuha)

Today we visited the CWUHA supported Phoenix Centre run by our fantastic partners @MADAid1 Unloading the vehicles and then heading out to local villages to deliver aid direct to vulnerable families #DeliveringASmile @CWUnews

CWUHA (@cwuha)

The latest CWUHA Convoy has finally made it to Moldova with the broken down van not far behind. Glad to finally be here and be able to deliver the aid! #DeliveringASmile

CWUHA (@cwuha)

Some gorgeous buildings and scenery driving through Romania today. We pushed on so only have a 2hr drive to the Moldovan border tomorrow! Soon we will be #DeliveringASmile

MAD-Aid (@MADAid1)

Even with broken VAN the spirit to deliver aid is stronger and as team we will Make it Happen! We will Make A Difference! Great effort- Carl, Lenny, Johny, Doru! https://www.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=2384142988278760&id=606882912671452

CWUHA (@cwuha)

Convoy up and nice early after a setback yesterday with one of the vans breaking down. The aim today is to make it to the border for an early crossing tomorrow!

CWUHA (@cwuha)

Colin did a great job of keeping guard last night so we’re ready to get going for a slightly shorter drive day into Romania! #DeliveringASmile

CWUHA (@cwuha)

After a long 12 hour drive day Colin drew the short straw and had to keep guard with the van overnight. Think it will be an early night for everyone ahead of an early start tomorrow #DeliveringASmile

CWUHA (@cwuha)

Quick pit stop for the Convoy to Moldova to get our vignettes for Austria and then back on the road. Making up quite a bit of time today from roadworks yesterday!

CWUHA (@cwuha)

Everybody doing their vehicle checks in preparation for today’s journey to Hungary. We’ve got a bit of distance to make up because of road works yesterday! #OnTheRoadToMoldova #DeliveringASmile

CWUHA (@cwuha)

Colin the CWUHA dog keeping guard while we all stop for lunch. Driving 780 km today to our first stop in Velburg Germany.. #DeliveringASmile

As the latest CWUHA Convoy departs we would like to pay a massive tribute to our partners @MADAid1 Without this wonderful charity and there founder Victoria Dunford we couldn't deliver hundreds of smiles to vulnerable children in Moldova.

Carl Webb (@NWCWU)

Good luck to all the wonderful @CWUHA volunteers who will be delivering hundreds of smiles! Brilliant union charity.. Then again I could be seen as biased 😁

Natalie Crook (@nat_crook)

Good luck to the latest group heading to Moldova to deliver aid to disadvantaged children. Also mega proud of @beckyc_89 on her first convoy! (She’s the little one on the right) Safe journey ahead to you all! @cwuha

Joyce Stevenson (@jhstevenson3)

@cwuha good luck with the convoy. I will be watching the progress. Take good care of Johnny & Pat from @cwuscot1 @CwuScotland

CWUHA (@cwuha)

Good luck to all the volunteers taking part in the Sept Humanitarian mission to Moldova. We couldn't do without the support of the branches and members of @CWU @CWUnews and of course @RoyalMail @bt_uk @eir @AnPostvox Thanks for helping us #DeliverASmile

The CWU (@CWUnews)

Very best of luck to our @cwuha 16 convoy drivers leaving today with 12 new faces among them 😊 Arriving in Moldova next Monday. Keep us posted on your travels ✊ #TheCWU
