THE 2014 CHRISTMAS SHOE BOX APPEAL

Rotary Clubs in our area have now delivered the filled Christmas shoeboxes to the Depot in Nursling ready for shipping abroad to the four international destinations.
Our community network sent off 754 boxes which included 171 boxes for Hamble Valley Rotary Club.
It was a fantastic result and thanks each and every one of you who helped collect, sort and pack the shoeboxes.

The gift of a shoebox that contains toys, toiletries, educational items or household goods is a drop of happiness to the people of Eastern Europe who live in a world of poverty. For many, it will be the first present that they have ever received and it lets them know that somebody, somewhere cares.

Membership - What could be in it for you
Fun, friendship and satisfaction that you have helped your community. It's a great organisation to join and provides you with a group of instant ethical friends and international connections. It widens your sphere of knowledge and integrates you further into your local community.
Joining Rotary opens up a whole new aspect to your life and aids development. The more cautious will be encouraged and you can quickly gain confidence to lead a project, make presentations and perform public speaking that you may have thought wre things you weren't capable of doing.
There are Rotary Clubs in a town or village near you who welcome new members, who through their skills or vocation can help make their community a better place in which to live. Clubs may meet at breakfast time, lunch time or in the evening. Because we all have busy lives, members go along when they can.

Rotary has the "Greatest Charity in the World", the Rotary Foundation, with 1.2 million members of staff in 33,000 Rotary Clubs througout 200 countries, all working as volunteers for free. It spends $51 million dollars A DAY on communities throghout the world.
