Appeal for unwanted shoes and clothes

A coffee morning is being held in aid of the Children of Chernobyl next month but it is also the last chance for people to drop off items to be shipped to Russia for disadvantaged children.

A trip is setting off in October and at the coffee event at Newholm Village Hall on Thursday September 3 (10am-noon) goods such as shoes, clothes or old school uniforms, can be dropped off. Alternatively things can be left with Brenda Simpson at 17 Mulgrave Road, Whitby up until that date.

She said: “The response this year has been overwhelming hence the extra trip up from Essex to pick things up and I hope to see you at the coffee morning.”
