Marlow residents are being encouraged to donate their unwanted clothes to help Ebola orphans in Sierra Leone.

Organised by Marlovian Lori Spragg, the clothes need to be for teenagers and pre-teens.

In an appeal that was shared on the Marlow Life Facebook group, Lori also urged those who live in the area to donate items such as solar calculators, maths sets, real toothbrushes (not airline disposable toothbrushes), bars of soap, and Christmas treats.

She also said that only summer clothes can be donated due to hot weather in the West African country and that the shoes need to be clean and primarily black.

If you would like to donate, drop off your unwanted items in the Blue Shed at 38 Oak Tree Road in Marlow.

The deadline to drop off the items is the evening of Tuesday, October 27, as the shipment is being sent out the following day, Wednesday, October 28.

However, if you cannot reach the deadline, Lori revealed that bags still need to be filled for their orphans' Christmas party, which is to take place during the festive season.
