CHARITY shops are appealing for cash donations to send to Nepal.

Oxfam shops at West Street, in Fareham, and Pier Street, in Lee-on-the-Solent, are appealing for the donations to raise funds for Oxfam’s emergency response team.

All donations collected at either shops will go towards Oxfam’s operations which are helping those who are now trying to survive following the disaster on Saturday.

Shop manager at Fareham Christine Chapman said: ‘We have all seen the terrible images and we all want to help, in however small a way.

‘Donating in the shop is easy and will make a real difference to Oxfam’s emergency work.’

Oxfam already has a team in Nepal and a team of technical experts are flying from the UK and neighbouring Thailand with supplies to provide clean water, sanitation and emergency food supplies.

The Fareham shop is open Monday to Saturday 9am until 5pm. The Lee shop is open 9.30am until 4.30pm Monday to Saturday and 11am until 3pm on Sunday.
