A charity founded to help children access education in The Gambia is looking for new storage facilities.

Gambian Aid For Education was set up over 10 years ago by Janet and Les Clark in Mattishall.

Mrs Clark, and her co-worker Jane Moore, were last month forced to return home early from their annual trip to the African nation after a state of emergency was declared due to political unrest.

The charity collects donated clothing, shoes and school equipment which it then ships to The Gambia but has recently lost its storage facility.

Anyone in Mattishall, surrounding villages, or Dereham, with space in a shed, outbuilding or garage they could let the charity use, is asked to contact Mrs Clark on 01362 858221.
