Despite COVID-19 and local lockdown, Rotary Guernesiais collected a record number of shoeboxes for our 2020 season. Up 8% on the previous year, we achieved over 5,700 shoeboxes from the generous people of Guernsey.

Shoeboxes 2020 total: 5,717 

Despite the difficulties of COVID-19, the 2020 collection was a tremendous success, and we are delighted to announce that Rotary Guernesiais collected a record number of shoeboxes for our 2020 season. The total was up 10% on the previous year: an amazing 5,717 shoeboxes. We could not have done this without the help of many dedicated Rotarians, Inner Wheel members, Friends of Rotary, community groups, schools and businesses and most importantly the generous people of Guernsey! 

From all the children who will benefit from this year's collection, we want to extend a huge THANK YOU to all those who gave a shoebox.
