An Aid Convoy volunteer who was with us on one of our earliest convoys, into Kosova in summer 1999, has written a light-hearted travel book which includes elements from that trip and several journeys to Albania.
Called “Up the creek without a mullet”, it details Simon Varwell’s attempts to visit every place on earth that is named after the hairstyle he most loathes!
Aid Convoy is delighted and grateful that Simon is donating a contribution from his royalties — in other words, we receive a share of the profit from every book sold.
Please check it out; it’s available from bookshops including Amazon and Waterstones.
Our newsletter from autumn 2004. This is the point at which we updated our name. “Brighton Lifeline Humanitarian Aid” had never been exactly snappy. So in 2004 we decided to simplify and adopt a name which makes it very clear what we do — the name we still use today: Aid Convoy.

Other stories covered, along with the name change, include developments at the Berezna school for children with severe learning difficulties; another visit to the Zamglai orphanage for girls; information on the Our Generation youth group, and particularly their music club; and a briefing on Albania.
