Whilst there are many things we cannot do in the community during this very difficult time, the things we can do to help others are very fulfilling. Our club is renowned for making a difference where ever and when ever we can. Every year we have the Shoebox scheme where we fill Shoeboxes for children and adults in very poor homes who may not have any money to spend on little presents for Christmas. During lockdown it has helped us to spread a little happiness . In our house alone we were able to provide 30 Shoeboxes as a family! It helped us to give something back. We asked family and friends to donate toys, toiletries, gloves, scarves and small gifts for others who may not have anything for Christmas. My granddaughter decorated the boxes and wrote caring messages to put inside. I think she learned the important lesson that not everyone is as lucky as she is . Please consider Rotary when you are looking for a new outlet for your family . To make friends, enjoy a lovely social life and give something back to society . There’s never been a better time to do something positive. We’re all in this together.
