Generous people have contributed a huge quantity of urgently-needed items to Syrian refugees.

The collection was arranged by the Al-Hikmah project, based in Utley, Keighley. The hundreds of boxes of goods will be dispatched to the conflict zone this weekend.

Collection co-ordinator Khurm Mezhar said the donated items included tinned food, clothes, blankets and medical supplies. He said these were being sent out to the Keep Syria Warm appeal, to help some of the millions of people who have been made destitute.
