A Manx charity shop is appealing to residents to support its appeal to help the victims of the Pakistan floods.

Oxfam, in Castle Street, Douglas, is taking donations which will go towards providing clean water and sanitation.

The floods have affected more than four million people and left at least 1,600 dead, the United Nations said.

Shop manager Sue Burnham said Manx people were traditionally very supportive of such appeals and she hoped they would donate.

"The people on this island are absolutely remarkable," she said.

"I just get blown away every time something awful like this happens.

"My heart grieves for people but then my heart is so excited by the response."
