Appeal opens for victims of tsunami

By LEIGH PRITCHARD

GRAFTON Clothes Pegg's Peggie Mavin said her heart went out to the victims of the tsunami disaster that swept Southern Asia on Sunday.

Mrs Mavin will donate $5000 worth of new clothing from her store which will be distributed with the help of the service club Lions. She has encouraged other businesses to donate.

"You have to put yourself in their place, they have lost all their possessions ... it's sickening," she said.

She said she aimed to raise $20,000 worth of clothing. "I only thought about doing it today and the Lions club agreed to distribute them."

Mrs Mavin said she had helped charities for more than 30 years.

To donate items call Peggie Mavin on (02) 6642 5210 or drop clothing at Clothes Pegg at 50 Prince Street, Grafton.
