Disaster relief strikes gold

RESIDENTS are welcome to join in a Morpeth golden wedding celebration with a difference on Saturday.

Jim and Rhona Dunn are marking 50 years of marriage with an open house event and guests will be asked to make a donation to ShelterBox, an international disaster relief charity.

Humanitarian aid is delivered in green ShelterBoxes to help people across the world who have been displaced from their homes following natural disasters.

Each one contains a relief tent for an extended family, water purification equipment, a stove, blankets and other items essential for survival.

The event is taking place at 72 Merley Gate, Loansdean, from 10am until the evening.
