The Club turned out to do a collection for the Turkiye-Syria Earthquake disaster.
After 10 hours collecting from shoppers at Tescos in Osterley, and with generous personal donations from club members, we had about £1200 (with Gift Aid).
The club voted to donate all the funds collected to Shelterbox. https://youtu.be/OhX4k3UOWaE.
Shelter Box are fortunate in that they are able to operate in both Türkiye and Syria and to date by working with Rotary and local authorities they have been able to achieve:They have imported tents into Türkiye soon after the earthquake, more tents and other essential items like blankets, mattresses, stoves, and lighting are almost ready.
