SHOE­BOX SCHEME SUCH A SUC­CESS

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION - AN­DREW WAR­REN Ro­tary in Amer­sham

RO­TARY in Amer­sham has taken part in the na­tional Ro­tary ‘Shoe­box’ Scheme for 2016 and in­tends to ex­pand this next year in­volv­ing more chil­dren in Amer­sham. The aim is to pro­vide a small shoe­box size par- cel con­tain­ing gifts to the poor­est and most de­prived chil­dren and their fam­i­lies in Ro­ma­nia and Moldova.

For some of these chil­dren it will be the first Christ­mas present they have ever had and it is al­ways won­der­ful to see the smiles on their faces when they re­ceive them.

Amer­sham Ro­tary wishes to give a big thank you to St Ge­orge’s School in Amer­sham who con­trib­uted 73 filled boxes with some very nicely dec­o­rated ones.

These will be de­liv­ered at Christ­mas.

A to­tal of 151 boxes were filled with help from oth­ers.

Theo Le­lyveld, Anish Adapa, Um­mayyah Khan, Maya-Emily Bryant pupils at St Ge­orge’s School are seen in the pic­ture above with the boxes.
