Anonymous donation to Fistula Hospital

Fistula Hospital in Addis Ababa

Regular readers of Cheviot Views newsletter will likely know of the work of Beryl and John Parr who regularly raise funds for the Fistula Hospital in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

They frequently do this by running a charity shop in Wooler, selling almost anything if it is in a good, saleable condition and, where applicable (e.g. electrics), in working condition. Items such as clothes, household goods, bric-a-brac, toys, tools, sports equipment, children’s things and books are always welcome. Small items of furniture can often also be accommodated and sold. Videos can’t be sold but old vinyl records do sell quite well.
