Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Refugee Crisis -

Mean­while at the Save the Chil­dren char­ity shop in North Street, Ash­ford vol­un­teer Bar­bara Mick­leth­waite said there had been a no­tice­able in­crease in bags com­ing in this week.

She said: “We’ve had an aw­ful lot of do­na­tions over the last week or so. It might just be the time of year, or it might be be­cause of what peo­ple have seen on tele­vi­sion.

“We’re al­ways glad for any do­na­tions which come in, but we’d also like vol­un­teers to help us, ei­ther serv­ing in the shop or help­ing out back.”

She said volunteering for half a day or a full day each week is ideally suited to those who have re­cently re­tired. For more in­for­ma­tion call the shop on 01233 640665.

Ash­ford Save the Chil­dren have had a large in­crease in do­na­tions and need vol­un­teers for their shop in Ash­ford. Here vol­un­teer Bar­bara Mick­leth­waite is at the store with do­na­tions
