Sunderland young people collecting clothes for African orphans

Have your say

CARING youngsters are looking for donations of clothes to help orphans in Africa.

Members of Box Youth Project, in Hall Farm, Sunderland, launched the appeal after a group of volunteers from the group travelled out to Gambia in December last year.

They were so moved by the plight of orphans living without any support from the Government that they vowed to help them.

The young people plan on travelling back to the Gunjur region this year and want to collect a shipment of clothes and shoes for children of all ages, from babies, through to toddlers and up to teenagers, as well as bed sheets, toys and books.

Donations towards the cost of shipping will also be gratefully received.
