LETTER: Green morning to help urgent cause

What's on.
What's on.

Have you ever been to a Green Coffee Morning? Well now is your chance and you can help raise much needed funds for the Philippines in the meantime.

On Saturday 7th December from 10 - 12 noon in the Quaker Meeting House, Worthing Road, the Horsham Quakers are running their once a month Green Coffee Morning.

In addition to their normal Ecover cleaning product refill service and other green stands, Sussex Green Living are taking their recycled stand to sell beautiful upcycled merchandise made by the Philippine Community Fund (ex landfill families). These goods include jewellery, bags and purses made out of our waste resources such as aluminium ring pulls, fruit juice pouches, crisp packets and glossy paper. They are ideal Christmas presents and for a fantastic cause. All the proceeds go directly back to the PCF.

The charity supports poor Filipino families who used to work the landfill, even children as young as four.

The PCF provides healthcare, training and work for adults and education to over 800 children in the Philippine Community Fund school.

Life in the Philippines has never been easy, especially now with the horrendous devastation in parts of the Philippines caused by Typhoon Haiyan.

The Philippine Community Fund is based in Manila, which although not as badly hit as the areas in the south, they have experience flooding much worse than ever before and are in great need of help and funding.

The Sussex Green Living recycled stand will also be selling kitchen and garden goods made out of recycled materials, toys and books educating children about recycling, climate change and our precious planet. Examples of some of the products can be seen here http://www.sussexgreenliving.co.uk/spread-the-word/recycled-stand/

There will be free tea, coffee, cakes courtesy of the Horsham Quakers and it doesn’t cost to look! Location: Quaker Meeting House, Worthing Road, Horsham, RH12 1SL (opposite Sainsbury’s car park).
