Fundraising for Turkey & Syria
Posted By rick
Following the shocking news from Turkey and Syria, Weymouth Rotary have joined forces with fellow clubs from around the world to donate ‘Shelterboxes’ to the region. Within 24 hours of the tragedy, the local club donated three Shelterboxes (worth £2,000) with the club’s hosts, the Pilgrim House Trust matching that donation.
Shelterboxes are complete kits, adapted to the needs of the situation; whether it be war or natural disaster. Tents, tarpaulins, tools, blankets, cooking sets and water filters can all be provided, and working with partners on the ground, delivered to the affected area incredibly fast.
We will be collecting in the following locations:
Saturday 11th February – Weymouth town centre
Thursday 16th February – ASDA Weymouth
Friday 17th February – Morrisons Weymouth
