ESSEX EARTHQUAKE APPEAL

A major earthquake measuring 5.8 on the Richter scale hit in the early
hours of Monday, 03 July 2004. Epicentre: Essex said Victims were
seen wandering around aimless muttering "faaackin ell"

The earthquake decimated the area causing approximately £30 worth of
damage. Several priceless collections of mementos from the Balearics and Spanish Costa's were damaged beyond repair.

Three areas of historic burnt out cars were disturbed.
Many locals were woken well before their giro arrived. Essex FM (County Radio Station) reported that hundreds of residents were confused and bewildered, still trying to come to terms with the fact that something interesting had happened in Canvey, One resident - Tracy Sharon Smith, a 15-year-old mother of 5 said, "It
was such a shock, my little Chardonnay-Mercedes came running into my bedroom crying. My youngest two Tyler-Morgan and Megan-Storm slept through it all.

I was still shaking when I was watching Tricia the next morning."

Apparently though, looting, muggings and car crime did carry on as
normal.
The British Red Cross has so far managed to ship 4,000 crates of
Sunny Delight to the area to help the stricken locals.

Rescue workers are still searching through the rubble and have found
large quantities of personal belongings, including benefit books, and jewellery from Elizabeth Duke at Argos and Bone China from Pound land.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?
This appeal is to raise money for food and clothing, parcels for those
unfortunate enough to be caught up in this disaster. Clothing is most
sought after, items most needed include:

Fila or Burberry baseball caps
Kappa tracksuit tops (his and hers)
Shell suits (female)
White sport socks
Rockport boots
Any other items usually sold in Primark.

Food parcels may be harder to come by, but are needed all the same.
Required foodstuffs include Microwave meals Tins of baked beans, Ice
cream, Cans of Colt 45 or Special Brew.
22p buys a biro for filling in the compensation forms,
£2 buys chips, crisps and blue fizzy drinks for a family of 9
£5 will pay for a packet of B&H and a lighter to calm the nerves of those affected.

**Breaking news**
Rescue workers found a girl in the rubble smothered in Claret -'where are you bleeding from?' they asked.

"Canvey island" said the girl, "woss that got to do wiv it?" <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
