URGENT - DUDLEY EARTHQUAKE APPEAL

 

At 00:54 on Monday 23 September an earthquake measuring 4.8 on the

Richter scale hit Dudley,UK causing untold disruption and distress -

 

* Many were woken well before their giro arrived

 

* Several priceless collections of mementos from the Balearics and

Spanish costas were damaged

 

* Three areas of historic and scientifically significant litter were

disturbed

 

* Thousands are confused and bewildered, trying to come to terms with

the fact that something interesting has happened in Dudley

 

One resident, Donna-Marie Dutton, a 17 year old mother-of-three said

It was such a shock, little Chantal-Leanne came running into my bedroom

crying. My youngest two, Tyler-Morgan and Megan-Storm slept through it.

I was still shaking when I was watching Trisha the next morning."

 

Apparently though, looting did carry on as normal.

 

The British Red Cross have so far managed to ship 4000 crates of Sunny

Delight to the area to help the stricken masses.

 

Rescue workers are still searching through the rubble and have foound

large quantities of personal belongings including benefit books.

 

HOW YOU CAN HELP

 

* £2 buys chips, scraps and blue pop for a family of four

 

* £10 can take a family to Stourport for the day, where children can

play on an unspoiled canal bank among the national collection of stinging

nettles

 

* 22p buys a biro for filling in a spurious compensation claim
