Harvest Appeal 2016 – Food for Malawi and Eritrea

Harvest Appeal 2016 is specifically for  food, school stationery and first aid for Malawi and Eritrea.  The Trustees invite you to join in with our annual Harvest Appeal; they are aware that everyone is feeling the pinch and charity often begins at home!  But it need not stop there …whilst local food banks are keen to accept donations all year we cannot ignore the needs of our brothers and sisters in Africa.  We plead with you to continue your support as your donations will support an orphange in Lilongwe for the year and homeless refugees in Eritrea fleeing persecution in Yemen and Ethiopia.  If you are unable to donate goods this year perhaps you would run a fund raising event as financial contributions to assist with the sending of goods are essential.  Each box now costs £24 to send overseas.   

Food stuffs: dried food items – beans, pulses, rice and tinned items – all with a minimum of 12 month use by dates please.

School Stationery: pencils, sharpeners, erasers, rulers, note books and solar powered calculators.

First Aid: plasters, bandages, tweezers, small scissors
