Principality raises 6,000 for earthquake appeal

Principality has raised more than 6,000 towards the appeal for survivors of the earthquake in Pakistan.

This is thanks to the generosity of Principality staff and customers who have pledged their support for the appeal. The society, which has branches in communities across Wales and the borders, has opened a special account that any member of the public can pay donations into. The donations are distributed by Y Care International – the international development and relief agency of the YMCA in the UK and Ireland.

Funds are urgently used to help those people affected by the earthquake before the first snowfall. Hundreds of doctors from all over Pakistan and around the world are arriving in the earthquake-stricken region to support or replace medical staff overwhelmed by the disaster.

Tracy Morshead, managing director of Principality, says: “Its important that we play our part in making it as easy as possible for the public to donate money towards this appeal.

“Donations to Principalitys Earthquake Appeal enables Y Care International to ensure that aid is delivered where it is needed most and as quickly as possible.”

Donations to the Principalitys Niger Appeal can be made over the counter at any of Principalitys 51 branches throughout Wales and the borders.
