A FUNDRAISING coffee morning is set to take place following an appeal for supplies to aid those suffering after the earthquake in Turkey and Syria.

The event will take place at Great Bentley Village Hall and organisers have asked for raffle prize donations, new items for stalls and cakes for the refreshments section.

All money raised at the coffee morning will go to Clacton Rotary Club to buy shelterboxes for earthquake victims.

Shelterboxes contain a heavy duty tent and essential tools like thermal blankets, cooking utensils, solar lights, a water purification unit and more.

For more information on the event and donations call Mary Maskell on 01206 250 524.

The coffee morning will take place on Saturday, February 25, between 10am and noon.
