Refuge Fife is holding a donations day to help refugees at a camp in Samos, Greece.

The donation day will be held this Saturday, September 22, at the Church of the Latter Day Saints on Winifred Crescent in Kirkcaldy.

Among the items sought are warm winter clothes, shoes, waterproof jackets and toiletries.

Adult clothing would ideally be in sizes small and medium – there aren’t many people in refugee camps who need large sizes, as the lack of foos often means they’ve lost weight.

Also needed are children’s clothes and shoes.

Supporters are also being asked to put together a small package containing nappy cream, a packet of ibuprofen or paracetamol and a £1 coin.

Unused Euro coins or notes left over from holidays can also help have a positive impact on the lives of those in need.

The day begins at 10am, and the group are keep to speak to anyone who can spare an hour or so to help pack, especially at 1pm when the truck comes.
