Christmas Shoeboxes

We have received this message from the Fareham Meon Rotary Club:


Very many thanks for once again participating in this scheme and your continued support is greatly appreciated. With your help our club was able to send 1,556 boxes, which was a record for us, to the Philippine Community Fund’s depot at Horton Heath, near Hedge End. Other Rotary clubs in our District also sent boxes to the depot and the final total was 5895 and these have already been shipped out to the Philippines.  In addition it is expected that over 27, 000 boxes collected by Rotary clubs will be sent to the other countries with which Rotary is involved.

Would you thank your pupils for collecting 45 boxes which are going to children who live in such appalling conditions and poverty. If you go to the Fund’s website at you can see a gallery of pictures which bring home their situation.

Many thanks for your continued support and I do hope you will help us again next year.
