Fundraisers invited to join fight against Ebola

Tue, 11 Nov 2014

Volunteers are needed to help fundraise in the fight against Ebola.

The One World Centre has issued an appeal to find people to raise money this weekend in aid of the Disasters Emergency Committee.

So far almost 5,000 people have been killed by the Ebola virus, predominantly in West Africa, with 13,000 believed to be infected.

The Island charity is coordinating the DEC's appeal - the body is made up of 13 UK aid agencies with all money going towards people working on the ground to stop the spread of the disease.

Collections will take place in Douglas, Castletown, Peel, Ramsey and Port Erin between Friday and Sunday - anyone who can help is asked to contact the centre.
