Radstock Co-operative Society raising funds for DEC Turkey-Syria  Appeal

Radstock Co-operative Society are joining forces with other Co-operatives in supporting the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC’s) Turkey-Syria Appeal.

A series of devastating earthquakes have hit Southern Turkey & North-West Syria killing over 15,000 people & injuring many more.

People have been left without shelter in freezing winter conditions, with humanitarian needs expected to grow in the coming days. Access to clean water will likely be a challenge, bringing the risk of cholera and other diseases. 

DEC charities and their local partners are among the first responders, working with locally-led relief efforts in Turkey (now known as Türkiye) and Syria. Immediate priorities are search and rescue, medical treatment for the injured, shelter for those who have lost their homes, heaters for spaces and winter kits with blankets, and warm clothes, and ensuring people have food and clean water. 

The Society is supporting the appeal by encouraging our colleagues, members & customers where possible to donate.

How you can support: Any colleague, member or customer who would like to donate can:
