HUDDERSFIELD has again shown its backing for the victims of the terrible Haiti earthquake.
Children, church groups and firms have all being busy raising funds to help the survivors.
The quake last month claimed at least 150,000 lives and left one million homeless.
United Nations officials are expecting a convoy of more than 100 ships carrying aid to arrive over the next few days. And dozens of planes are flying in each day with more emergency supplies.
WHEN they decided to stage a fundraiser for the victims, staff from Deighton-based online retailer Buy It Direct got their thinking caps on.
In fact they donned all kinds of weird and wonderful creations for their Hats for Haiti day.
For one day the office was full of colour as staff wore everything from bright Stetsons and little delicate hats to their own eye-popping designs.
Mark Kelly, the company’s marketing manager, said: “The office was quite vibrant and customers were having a bit of a laugh while they were looking around the showroom for their TVs!
“I think a cause like Haiti is something everyone wants to help with.”
The company’s Jess Barrett organised the day and the total raised will be doubled by managing director Nick Glynne.
Customers can donate to the company in store, by phone or on its websites.
