Aylesbury Rotary Shelterbox Event; how will you be involved?

How will you help out in an international disaster?  We plan to put Aylesbury on the map as a town that cares and does something to help.  Shelterbox is a Rotary Project Partner and we will be organising a number of events and activities over the coming months and years.

Contact us if you or your organisation like to be involved.

A BIG Thank you to the Aylesbury Community as Santa raises record amount

In December 2012, the Rotary Club of Aylesbury raised a record £10,691.00 from both the Hale Leys collection as well as the Float touring the suburbs. This was despite some ups and downs of things going wring with the float (and we apologise to anyone who may have missed out as a result).

Cheques will be handed out to local charities on 25th February 2013. More details to follow.

Shelterbox; how Aylesbury can help others when disaster strikes

Image from Shelterbox.org
A Shelterbox contains all the equipment necessary for 10 people to have shelter, warmth, light and food. The organisation, Shelterbox, was started by Rotarians in Cornwall and is now an official Rotary International Project Partner.

OUr club is keen for the Aylesbury community to be involved in raising funds to Shelterbox and in the coming months we will announce an initiative to do this.  In the meantime, we have donated finds for the purchase of one Shelterbox. The number of this box is UK0068500. You can track where this box is sent by going to this link.

Would you / your business like a box that you can track as your own contribution to a disaster?  If so, please contact us.
