You will all have seen the news coverage from the terrible earthquakes that have caused such devastation and loss of life in both Turkey and Syria. While the race continues to find survivors in the rubble, tens of thousands have been injured and hundreds of thousands have lost their homes. Funds are urgently needed to support families with medical aid, emergency shelter, food and clean water in freezing weather conditions.
The Disasters Emergency Committee, an umbrella organisation that represents 15 different international charities who come together in times of crisis, has now launched an appeal and the One World Centre will be holding a street collection in response to this. We are currently making arrangements with town commissioners etc. Tesco has kindly offered us space on Friday 10th, Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th February to collect there and Shoprite has also kindly offered its stores on the afternoon of Friday 10th February, all day on Sunday 12th February and also the weekend of 18th and 19th February. We’d really like to make the most of these opportunities so please get in touch if you can help with collecting by emailing email@example.com or calling 310191. Thank you.
