Christmas shoe box appeal for 14 year old girls

Bird Board members are putting together Christmas shoe boxes for “your 14 year old self”.

You can watch a quick 1 minute video below which explains more about it here.

Would you like to contribute or even better make up a box yourself? These Chrismas shoe boxes will be distributed to 14 year old girls in the North of England. Items could be dairies, cosmetics, positive books, pens, gloves, anything at all that you would have loved at that age and would have made you feel special. (Even sanitary products that some of these girls can’t easily access.) No alcohol or used items please for obvious reasons. And they need to be small enough to fit into a show box please.

We’ve  created a collection network during October to make it easy for you to get your items to us.

Collection Points

The following are where our Boards are held, where we will be and when,  during October 2017. The date is the date of our Board meeting. Please ensure that if you are dropping off any items, that you get them to the venue before the date of the meeting, as otherwise we cannot ensure that they will get to the Rotary Club distributors in time.

Thank you
