OXFAM in Darlington is accepting donations for the national Gaza Crisis Appeal, which supports those affected by the on-going conflict in Gaza.

The conflict has left thousands injured and without adequate accommodation, medication, food or clean water.

The shop’s manager, Hannah Ellis, said: “We are urging the people of Darlington to be as generous as they can and help us raise funds to help the people of Gaza put their lives back together.

Donations to the Disasters Emergency Committee Gaza Crisis Appeal can be made at any Oxfam branch, any high street bank and at Post Office counters. They can also be made online at dec.org.uk or by calling 0370 6060 900.
