Rotary Shoebox Scheme

By Stella Almond - Posted on 07 October 2013

At our main warehouse we are now becoming busy again as orders from clubs arrive for the Rotary Shoebox Scheme. We always seem to have more requests for filled boxes than we can supply and so need even more clubs to be involved in this unique International Project.

District 1010 has always been a big supporter but this year their clubs are out to surpass even their earlier efforts by aiming to fill 13,000 boxes in their district alone.

We are aware that Bulgaria and Romania do not engender the same sympathy with the general public here, since they became part of the EU, even though the plight of many of those living there is still as dire. We are therefore concentrating on delivering more boxes to other areas of Eastern Europe this year.
