A fundraiser from Filby is raising money for a children's home in Kenya.

Sandra Webb, 50, has launched the drive after she learned that a lack of rain was leading to shortages of home-grown crops for the youngsters the home cares for.

Among the items she has raised money for the last five years are a washing machine, 20 new mattresses, and a water tank.

So far £200 has been donated of her £150 target but she said more donations would help to ensure food stocks for months to come at the children's home.
