Rotary Shoebox Appeal 2017

We were delighted to have helped the Rotary Guernesiais Shoebox Appeal this year. Each year, the club – as part of a bigger regional campaign – sends boxes of gifts to under-privileged or orphaned children across Eastern Europe.

This year the local club sent an amazing 4,107 boxes which will hopefully put smiles on many youngsters’ faces.

The island should be proud of its achievements with two containers heading their way to Romania, Albania, Montenegro and Moldova. The project was supported by Guernsey Fire & Rescue Service, whose team helped load the containers. The Rotary team did an incredible job co-ordinating the collection from donors who ranged from schools and clubs to small businesses and large corporations.
