A PUB has launched a charity campaign to help Asian Tsunami orphans. Project Re-Gift aims to help orphans in Thailand five years after the Boxing Day Tsunami as well as disadvantaged kids across the UK.

It has been launched by the Rayleigh Lodge pub in the Chase, Rayleigh, which wants people to bring in new children’s Christmas gifts. Half of the collected items will go to UK charity KidsOut, for child victims of domestic violence. The rest will be sent to the Baan Tharn Namchai Orphanage in Khao Lak, Thailand.
