Syria-Turkey Earthquake Appeal

Cash Donations

If you would like to make a cash donation rather than one online, please note that there will be a basket at the back of each church this weekend.

Supporting Turkish and Syrian Communities – St. Joseph's Primary School

We are collecting for those affected by the recent earthquakes. Turkish and Syrian Communities are in desperate need of nappies, wipes, baby formula and toiletries (sealed new products only please). If anyone in the parish would like to donate, please drop any items at the school office located in St. Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, Mill Lane, Gilesgate, Durham, DH1.2JQ. Many thanks, the pupils and staff of St Joseph's.


CAFOD is responding with support of provision of food, water, shelter, medical assistance and winter kits for survivors. Your donations in recent months have made that quick response possible. Let us join CAFOD in praying for our sisters and brothers affected by the earthquakes and the winter weather. Your support for CAFOD throughout the year allows our Catholic agency to act quickly when disasters strike. For more details visit CAFOD’s Turkey Syria Emergency Appeal online at
