Europe Refugee Crisis Appeal – British Red Cross Appeals for local help

British-Red-Cross-LogoDear Stone & Eccleshall Gazette readers,

I am writing to appeal to you for volunteers to help raise funds for the British Red Cross at fundraising collections across Staffordshire this coming weekend 19-20 September.

The British Red Cross has launched the Europe Refugee Crisis Appeal to raise funds to help those in need. As well as supporting refugees who have arrived in this country with provisions such as clothing, food provisions and hygiene kits the British Red Cross is supporting other Red Cross societies overseas respond to the Europe Refugee Crisis.

We are raising vital funds to respond to this humanitarian need. Just two hours of your time can help those in crisis.

To hear more about our collections and to get involved please call the Senior Community Fundraiser – Rachel Weaver on 07843 501456 or email

If you would like to support us in another way please get in touch, why not hold a coffee morning or other event in your local community, whatever you can do will help in this response.

Many thanks,

Rachel Weaver

Senior Community Fundraiser
