A Message of Thanks From the Caribbean

A thank you message to all the big-hearted Mersea Islanders who contributed cash and goods for victims of two major hurricanes in September.

Lisa Adamson, who was distributing Rotary relief aid in the British Virgin Islands, came across a message of love and support from Mersea, and took to social media to express her thanks.

The fundraising initiative on Mersea included a well-supported coffee morning at the MICA, which also doubled as a collection point for emergency supplies ranging from toiletries and food to bedding and even a generator!

Members of the parish church and other local churches played an important part - baking cakes and helping out wherever they could.

Sue Brook, whose daughter Fiona Sparks, spearheaded the event, spotted the message of thanks  on Facebook and contacted the sender who replied: love-and-aid

'Morning Sue!
Thank you from all of us here. When I opened the box and saw the note, I was so touched as the 40ft container was full of boxes from all over the UK, many with no notes but some with the name of a company. This note meant so much to us. We got them distributed throughout the territory and everyone is so thankful.


We are all getting on with it. As we say “it’s the new norm”. We have a long way to go for sure. The best thing is that the foliage is now growing over and making the islands look beautiful and lush again. This helps folks to have a new look on the island. Many, many areas are still without power and most likely won’t get power until at least March or April.
From all of us here we send thanks to you over there as our recovery is helped by people like you who have love in their hearts to help the people of the BVI. Thank you Sue, and please, please tell all who helped, how much we appreciate their kindness, compassion and care.
With prayers.'
