The Ports of Jersey are appealing to islanders to donate items to help people in the Caribbean who've been affected by the hurricanes.

Collection points will be open today (Monday) and tomorrow between 8am and 3pm at the Ports engineering depot at the Airport Cargo Centre in St Peter.

They're asking islanders to give the following essential items.

  • Water purification tablets
  • Tinned food (fish, vegetables, meat)
  • Rope
  • Duct tape
  • Plastic sheeting/tarpaulin
  • Nails
  • Hammers
  • Wood saws
  • Candles
  • Metal cooking pots/containers
  • Tin openers
  • First aid kits

Once they have collected a sufficient amount of items, the Ports of Jersey say they will then make arrangements to have these items transported to Guadeloupe and then transferred onto the affected regions.
