Shoebox Appeal

We have been organising this appeal for the last 5 years. We purchase a number of shoeboxes and willing volunteers purchase items to fill the shoeboxes which are then shipped to children who don't receive much at Christmas in Eastern Europe.

In 2018/19 we facilitated the filling of nearly 300 boxes.  Brentwood County High, who regularly get involved in this activity filled 165 boxes.  Kelvedon Hatch participated this year for the first time and filled circa 65 and the remaining boxes were filled by Rotarians and friends.  We would like to thank all those that participated to help make children, less fortunate than ourselves, have a little joy at Christmas.

Comment: A really worthy initiative . It is great to get local schools involved - children do appreciate the real importance of a gift at Christmas. Well done
