Clothing on way to the needy

By EMMA CORNFORD

PEOPLE throughout the Clarence Valley continue to dig deep for survivors of the tsunamis.

Boxes of clothing and toothbrushes and toothpaste have been collected by the Lions tsunami appeal, which has been running for around a week.

President of Grafton Lions Bernie Barron said when enough goods had been donated, they would be taken to the Lions head office in Newcastle to be distributed throughout affected nations.

"At the moment what they really need is money but soon it will be clothes and that kind of thing so that's where we're looking to come in," Mr Barron said.

PEOPLE wanting to make cash donations can do so through the National Australia Bank and at Clothes Pegg in Grafton where clothes can also be left.
