kosovoFollowing the death of Tito in 1980 the Balkan region erupted into a series of wars and in 1999 there was a huge problem with Ethnic refugees in Kosovo.

The fate of the refugees touched the hearts of many in the UK and particularly in the North West.

The members of the club rallied to the cause and in a very short time raised enough food and aid to fill a full lorry which joined a historic convoy of aid from Manchester and elsewhere.
