The Inner Wheel Club of Crewe has been filling and collecting shoeboxes over the past several months as part of the ‘Rotary Shoebox Scheme’ (See: www.rotaryshoebox.org)

Other local groups that have contributed to the Rotary Shoebox Scheme include: Haslington Boys’ Brigade, The Dingle Primary School, Vine Tree Primary School, Rotary Club of Crewe and various individuals.

This year has been a bumper year, with 247 boxes filled and sent. The shoeboxes will be distributed to children and teenagers in eastern European countries.

Anne Thompson, joint president of Inner Wheel Club of Crewe, commented: “Thinking of youngsters receiving no presents on their birthday or Christmas made us sure this was a project we would adopt this year.”

Inner Wheel is a group of ‘lively minded’ women who meet once a month for a meal and to decide on various charitable projects.
