The organisers thank everyone who helped us send 510 boxes of presents this year from St Boniface on the Rotary Club scheme. 150 of these boxes were sponsored and so many people helped by knitting, packing, storing and wrapping the boxes. The Brownies and Guides from the parish made up 50 boxes and this helped them to gain badges too.
All the boxes are now on their way by sea to the Philippines and East Africa where they will be met with great joy by the local Rotary Club members who will give them out.
The boxes for Manila will be especially welcome after the tremendous destruction in the islands this month.
Until next year-total so far is 6,510 boxes!
