Aylesbury Rotary continue to despatch Aquaboxes

We have a rolling plan to make up and send to the co-ordinators a number of Aquaboxes each year. These boxes are essential for disaster zones as they provide for the  basic survival of a family and double as water filters / carriers.

We recently sent two fully filled boxes and are working on completing another two.

If you'd like to contribute to an Aquabox, then please contact us. We take donations ranging from hammers and string through to cash and vaseline! Maybe you would like to sponsor a box on behalf of your company?
