Xmas appeal for Evans kids

The family and friends of Anna Evans are seeking the public’s help in making Christmas more bearable for the missing woman’s five children.

“Anna has been missing since 27 January, 2011 and her children has suffered tremendously, we are asking the public for help during this Christmas season,” said her sister Noreen Dixon.

On Dec. 7, the family and friends of the missing civil servant will be hosting a drive to collect food, cash, clothes, shoes and other items at Kirk’s Supermarket, between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m.

The family has limited living space, so organizers of the appeal are asking the public to give support with gift certificates for purchasing items in the future, instead of builidng up a stockpile. However, the family would be very grateful for any assistance that can be given, Ms Dixon said.

“We did receive a little feedback from a plea issued some months ago, but the children are still in need of basic items, such as cereal, bread, cookies tuna fish, corn beef, sausages, juices, water, snacks, bath soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste, mouthwash, shampoo and conditioner,” she said.

Two of Ms Evans’ children have medical issues, including her daughter Chelsea who has a heart disorder and her youngest son, Cruz, who has recently had to be treated overseas for a recently developed health condition.

The 37-year-old missing woman was last seen at the Geroge Town Landfill, where she worked.

In making the appeal, Ms Dixon said all donations were welcome. “It might not be much, but whatever people can give – whether it is money, food or clothes – it will be greatly appreciated.”

Those interested in making a donation can contact Lisa at 916-3143, Noreen 928-3504 or Shanna 916-3152.
