Manx clothes parcels sent to Sri Lankan orphanage

Parcels of clothes, donated by people on the Isle of Man, have been sent to an orphanage in Sri Lanka.

Post Office business analyst Lee Bridge and his wife Janet organised the donations after visiting The Princess Grace orphanage in Sri Lanka last year.

The Post Office now supports their work to send two sets of parcels of clothes, toys and books each year.

Mr Bridge said he hoped the parcels would help the children at the orphanage have a "very special" Easter.
