Running out of funds

editorial image

I should like to thank everyone who supported our latest ActionAid book sale.

We made £81, which we have donated to a special appeal.

For over a year ActionAid has been working on the Greek island of Lesbos, helping some of the thousands of refugees who arrive after a hazardous journey.

Unfortunately, the charity is now running out of money and may need to close that Greek project if more funds are not forthcoming.

Our next book sale will be held on October 31, at Hartlepool Central Library between 10.30am and 3.30pm.

We still need books, DVDs, CDs and tombola prizes.

To donate please ring 01429 236032.

Money will go towards ActionAid’s emergency work, concerning refugees and other victims of natural and man-made disasters.
