Shoebox Collection - Feb 2017
Pupils from the Ingatestone Anglo-European School have filled over 100 Rotary Shoeboxes, which along with the 70 boxes filled by club members, will soon be forwarded to The Balkans.
On Thursday 18th December 2014, Andrew Clarkson was delighted to collect no fewer than 101 shoeboxes from the 'World Watch Members' at The Anglo European School in Ingatestone.
To quote from the school's website - News - "Tha nk you for all the donations we've had to our Rotary shoebox appeal. We have never had so many donations and we're overwhelmed with the quality of gifts we've been sent."
....as indeed are The Rotary Club of Ingatestone...well done to you all!
