Keltruck has provided a Scania Topline tractor unit to the Nottinghamshire police aid convoy for its mercy mission to Albania.
The mission comes in the 14th year of work by the Nottinghamshire Police Aid Convoy charity and is the 20th time members of the team have departed together for eastern Europe.
The charity started in 1993 when police sent aid to parts of war-torn Yugoslavia that others could not reach. Since then they have taken aid to Kosovo, Albania, Romania and Russia. This year’s convoy took clothing, bedding, shoes, books and computers – items not available to people in desperately poor parts of Albania. “These people will only have one set of clothes for all day every day, so to provide it in the quantities we do is a lifesaver,” a spokesman for the charity told Kelnews.
The youngest team member of the team is Duke of Edinburgh award candidate Will York, 17, from Ravenshead, who set-up a blog (nottspoliceaidconvoy.blogspot.com) for people to follow the convoy’s journey.
The convoy left Mansfield on Sunday 22 April. Click here for the BBC News report.
