Have your say

The Richmond Centre has kindly donated the use of a kiosk on the top floor of the centre to Children in Crossfire in the run up to Christmas.

The kiosk called “ Shop for Life” has six ethical gifts for sale.

There are no ‘goats for sale’ but the shop promotes a similar idea; you buy a present for a friend or loved one, you receive a gift card to give to them for Christmas and Children in Crossfire will use you gift directly towards the NOURISH Programme at St Luke’s Hospital in Ethiopia.

The project cares for acute care and rehabilitation of malnourished children. There are six ethical gifts to choose from. They are all essential items or various prices to suit all budgets. The NOURISH programme clearly shows that a little goes a long way.

As well as vital food and nursing support for the children the gifts will allow Children in Crossfire to monitor the health of the children at risk from acute malnutrition in remote villages; by providing bikes, medicine and clean water.

The kiosk in the Richmond Centre will be open until Christmas Eve giving people the opportunity to make this Christmas special with the gift of life.

Gifts can also be purchased by phoning 02871269898.
