Destined for 'Rotary' to send abroad
Mike Collins, GSL of the 1st Boroughbridge Group tells us:
"Boroughbridge Scouts recently handed over 34 shoeboxes to Rotary International through the kind auspices of the Rotary Club of Knaresborough. The Scouts collected presents to fill the boxes which are made up for age specific children, for teenagers or for households. They will go to Children and Families who are in need over Christmas in places all over Europe. Each box was marked as a present from Boroughbridge Scouts."
NB The Rotary Shoebox Scheme operates from Rotary Clubs within Rotary Great Britain & Ireland. It’s based in Preston, Lancashire and the Scheme operates within Eastern Europe. Initially it started with the orphanages in Romania and spread from there.
Well done 1st Boroughbridge - gifts like this are welcome ANYTIME, but are especially welcomed around Christmas time by those in poverty!
