WEAR RED DAY ACROSS CHESHIRE 28TH JANUARY 2010
When I heard the news of the earthquake in Haiti, I was shocked by the immense scale of suffering this earthquake has inflicted on the people of Haiti. The people of Haiti are living out in the open, many with no food and very little water.
I decided I had to do something to help. Knowing how generous the people of Cheshire can be, and with the help of British Red Cross, I came up with the idea of Wear Red Day Across Cheshire on Thursday 28th January.
We are asking the people of Cheshire to wear something red and donate a £1 to help the Victims of The Haiti Earthquake.
So far we have a fantastic response from local councillor s and many Schools, colleges and local businesses across the county agreeing to take part in this event.
People are planning to make it a fun day and are organising raffles and selling cakes, etc.
Those wishing to take part can contact Cllr Derek Bebbington, on 0270 522902 or Eirlys Jessop at the British Red Cross Office on 01565 682309 or 01565 650201

The easiest way of getting the money to us is to ask each School/college to pay the money in directly at any bank or post office.
The Disaster Emergency Committee (DEC) have launched an appeal and we are members of this organisation so all money goes direct to them.
See below how they should pay the money in.
• via post cheques payable to ‘DEC Haiti Earthquake’ and mail to ‘PO Box 999, London, EC3A 3AA’.
• at any high street bank
• at a Post Office by quoting Freepay 1449.
Or they can donate indirectly via the usual BRC channels:
