Shoebox Appeal


Last autumn, club once again took part in the Rotary Shoebox scheme.

30 boxes, were bought and filled with a range of toys, gifts and toiletries. The advised cost of each contents is £20. Sadly no pre-owned or perishable goods can be accepted.

These were taken to the regional collection centre by Dave Chapman for onward shipment to eastern European countries.
