A North Devon group has raised more than £1,000 for medical aid in Palestine.

During the latest conflict since a ceasefire in August, the North Devon branch of the Palestine Solidarity Campaign (NDPSC) has been busily holding vigils in Barnstaple Square to raise money and awareness.

Members of the branch would like to thank those who attended vigils and related events and for their generosity.

NDPSC member Rosemary Haworth-Booth said: “Palestinians continue to struggle to rebuild their lives under incredible duress. Sabotage and blockading of water supplies, fuel, agriculture and desperately needed building materials are only a part of it.

“As Israeli aggression shows little sign of waning, need continues, so continued contributions from the public will be greatly valued.”

The group will continue to fundraise in the High Street and would like to welcome new members to its meetings, while there are also plans to hold a ‘Palestine Day’ in North Devon this year.
