     YOUR HELP IS URGENTLY NEEDED

    This may not be the top story in the news tonight, but our neighbours in the Pacific have been hit by a devastating storm.

    Cyclone Gita has devastated communities across Tonga. The category four cyclone arrived late last night bringing winds of over 233km/h, ripping roofs off houses and causing widespread flooding. Tens of thousands of people were left without power and water has been cut off.

    Please help provide the emergency shelter, food, clean water and hygiene kits to families who’ve had their lives torn apart.

    For further information, please follow the link to the Act for Peace website.
