“We are excited to officially open our new store today, and our amazing volunteers are ready to sort out all your Convoy registration and merchandise needs”, said Convoy manager, Mark Rigby. “We have some of the most passionate, loyal volunteers within our shop at Convoy, who do an amazing job, registering participants selling our Convoy merchandise and engaging with our supporters. We love seeing the support of the community, and hearing the stories that people provide us about trucking, motorbikes, and often their own personal journeys with medical conditions, and the reasons they are passionate about supporting our cause. We often have the families we support come into our shop and our volunteers, and it’s a pleasant reminder of why we do what we do.”
For those who cannot make it to the new Convoy Shop, registrations and the full Convoy merchandise range can also be purchased on the Convoy website, where they can receive free delivery thanks to Aramex and the amazing courier; Stu “Chicken Legs” Moore.
