Every year Sturminster Newton Rotary join with local Rotary clubs in our Rotary District in sending shoe boxes filled with gifts to disadvantaged children, babies and young people in Montenegro, Moldova and Romania.
It’s a lovely scheme and reports are that the boxes really do make children (and teenagers) happy and mean a lot – some children have not received a gift in a very long time.
We have special flyers to explain what goes in the boxes and how to wrap them. Contents vary depending on the age group that the gift is for; 1-3 years, 4-7 years, 8-11 years or 12-15 years.
We now supply ready cut boxes - just fold them and fill them - ready to go.
We commence collecting for the scheme in early October of each year and aim to get them to their destination before Christmas. If you would like to help out by donating gifts for the boxes or by donating a filled shoebox, please do get in touch with us - we would love to hear from you and will let you know how to obtain a flyer and where to deliver your shoe box once they have been completed.
Thank you so much for your help!
