Thanks for Turkish Earthquake Donations

Rosie Martin, receptionist at Area 5 in the Outpatients Department at Forth Valley Royal Hospital would like to thank colleagues who donated to her Turkey Earthquake Appeal and helped raise £330.

This was given to a local fundraising team, made up mainly of British expats living in Turkey, who have raised over £ 2,500.

It will be used to support local families who are unable to return to their own homes and have had to move to apartments in other areas as well as families who are still living in tents. Donations of clothing and toys will also be given to local families, many of whom lost all of their possessions in the earthquake.

The local fundraising group recently travelled to the earthquake zone to help distribute the money collected along with donations.
