Rotary Shoeboxes

Participation in the national project

Shoe box delivery in Romania

Cowbridge Rotary works with Cowbridge Comprehensive School and Y Bont Faen Primary School to participate in the national Rotary Shoebox scheme.

Originally started by North West Rotary clubs in 1994, the Rotary Shoebox Scheme was then intended to provide children of Iasi, in north-east Romania with Christmas gifts. Since then, the scheme has become a national project supported not only by Rotary clubs but also by individuals, schools, companies, churches, Inner Wheel, Rotaract & Interact etc.
Indeed we are delighted to welcome anyone who would like to be involved.

Each year we now send around 50,000 Shoeboxes or gifts.

Gifts are now sent out throughout the year to many different countries in Central and Eastern Europe. Toys are especially useful all year round for Birthday presents in the Orphanages, Homes and Hospitals. All age groups, including teenagers, have welcomed the boxes. We have delivered to children and teenagers in orphanages, hospitals and also to street kids; to Adults in TB and AIDS hospitals; to disadvantaged families, women’s refuges and to older folk in hostels with no supporting families.
