Rotary Shoebox Scheme
Local children are happy to help
FOUR local schools helped Turton Rotary Club to another successful year with their shoebox scheme.
This year four schools took part and returned a bumper 220 boxes. The schools involved were St John's Bromley Cross, St Columbas Tonge Moor, Walmesley and Egerton Primary Schools.
David Magilton, chairman of Turton Rotary's International Committee, said: "We had another a terrific response from the children and the schools. They love helping to give deprived children something to open at Christmas.”
The shoeboxes were heading to Romania and the Ukraine and the 220 from Turton will add to the 55,000 shoeboxes that have been already collected and delivered.
