Clive Huntbach, who has told the story of his aid convoys to Belarus on Audlem Online and also held fund-raising events in Audlem, has received a surprise award for his work from the Granada Reports TV programme — and just before he set out on another aid convoy to Eastern Europe.
Clive, who is a Humanities lecturer at South Cheshire College and colleague Isobel Atlasi, received a 'Croneys Champions' award for their work in the community just before setting out again to aid victims in Belarus of the Chernobyl disaster of 1986. He travelled with the aid convoy on what is now his fourth trip to Belarus.
Clive said: "Heading to some of the worst affected regions of the disaster really opens your eyes, but it's great to be able to put smiles on people's faces. This year we will be visiting an orphanage which we have not been to before, and we will be handing over toys and Easter eggs to the children."
The trip started a week ago and Clive and his colleagues are due back on 13th April. You can read his exploits on an Audlem Online article published last year in the Articles section (scroll down via 'More Articles'). Money for the relief trip was raised at a concert in St James' Church last October.
