It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas ...

Southsea Castle Rotary club have been active in the annual Christmas Shoe Box appeal for many years. Last year (due to Covid) we were unable to support this worthwhile cause, so this year the club got together to push this appeal forward.

Schools as well as Indvidual's were involved this year and we were fortunate to get 183 shoe box's from Charter Academy, Mayville and Court Lane infant and Junior schools. A club members friend Polly collected 12 boxes alone.

We would like to thank all involved in this drive as the many if not all children that receive these small tokens of love from us at Rotary only have this one gift to open on Christmas Day. The shoeboxes are transported to Albania, Montenegro, Moldova, Romania and the Philippines.

The organisation of the shoe box and transportation is a real Club and District effort, which we are all proud to be part of.  The joy of seeing a child opening up a Christmas Shoebox should not be underestimated. Well done to the teams involved and just leaves me to say "Merry Christmas". - Michael Barber.
