Earthquake Appeal Feb 2023

Charities Committee Earthquake Appeal‚Äč

By Romaisa Year 10

On Monday 6th February 2023, two enormous 7.8 and 7.5 magnitude earthquakes struck the regions of South East Türkiye and North West Syria, which are estimated to have directly impacted 26 million people across the regions. As the Ashmole Charities Committee, we felt it was our duty to raise money to support those devastated by the catastrophic damage.

We are very grateful to all students in every year group, and their parents and carers, for their swift and generous donations. I am delighted to announce that we raised £3700 for the British Red Cross Earthquake Appeal!

This money will assist with humanitarian aid, ongoing rescue efforts and immediate relief, as well as longer term aid for those affected.
