Here are some of the charities and projects we have been involved in over the last few years. Click on the image for a link to more information, or more pictures of the project.
Over the years, we have purchased many shelterboxes, which have been sent to disaster areas all over the world.
Since 2003 we have sent 38 boxes, with a total cost of around £19000, all donated by generous Stroud people during our many street collections.
From Burma to Bangladesh, families who have lost everything in a natural disaster have been given shelter, clean water and the basic needs of living - by people who didn't know them, but cared enough to help them in their time of desperate need.
You can find our contributions listed on the official Shelterbox page.

For the last four years we have been collecting unwanted computers, and sending them to schools in the remote areas of Sri Lanka. School funding is very restricted, and most children would never have the chance to use a computer during their school days. Our project gives them useful skills which will ensure a better future. The project was funded by a legacy from late Rotarian Jim Gough, matched by funding from the Rotary Foundation, a total of £10,000. Over 330 computers, with scanners, printers and other equipment have been sent.
