COOKSTOWN Enterprise Centre are preparing a charity coffee morning to help those in the Philippines following the devastating impact of the typhoon which hit the country just over a week ago.

The Enterprise Centre are hosting a Coffee Morning Wednesday 20th November from 9.30am-11.00am to raise funds for the Philippines Disaster Appeal.

The number of people in the Philippines confirmed dead from Typhoon Haiyan now stands at 3,631, officials say.

One week after the storm, food and supplies are now beginning to reach survivors, but aid agencies say the logistics of distribution are enormous.
