Handing over the filled Shoeboxes to Paul at Internation Aid Trust’s warehouse.
Once again, the Club and its friends deliver happiness in a Rotary Shoebox.
During November and early December, Shoeboxes were donated to the club for onward transportation to the International Aid Trust warehouse in Preston.
The boxes will be heading out to Eastern Europe- Romania, Ukraine, Moldova and Belarus.

Grandad’s little helper- Dylan- helping Peter to fill the last few Shoeboxes at Bethel Christian Fellowship.
The Royal School in Wolverhampton, Causeway Green Primary School in Oldbury, Bethel Christian Fellowship and The Rotary Club of Wolverhampton’s members and friends donated a wonderful total of 157 boxes.
The boxes are filled not only with items for children and teenagers, but also household goods for families in need.

The scheme really does bring benefits to very many people and we certainly thank everyone who contributed.
Foreman for the day- Dylan Boyce salutes his fine work in stacking many boxes.
‘As a result of the close and long standing connection between the Rotary Club of Wolverhampton and RAF Cosford, we were able to arrange for 2 Alumni from the Rotary Young Leaders Awards (RYLA) course, Oliver Hall and Jack Fawcett-Enright, who are keen to join the RAF, to have a meeting with the Station Commander, Group Captain Baker and Station Warrant Officer Hagan.
Oliver and Jack were given a first hand insight into life in the RAF and the opportunities presented by a service career, together with some excellent advice as to how to go about fulfilling their ambitions. Oliver wants to be a pilot, flying the RAF’s large transport aircraft, while Jack is interested in becoming an IT or engineering specialist. Both Oliver and Jack said they were thrilled by the meeting and gained a tremendous benefit by being given the chance to meet the senior RAF Officers, the meeting having been arranged by PDG Richard Green from the club.
The meeting was followed by a behind the scenes tour of RAF Cosford, during which the boys were given the chance to get up close and personal with a Jaguar fighter jet aircraft.’
