For the fifth year in succession, members of the Cranleigh Rotary Club have helped to bring smiles to the faces of hundreds of poor children at Christmas by supporting the collection of colourful shoe boxes for Romania.

Once again, the students of Glebelands Secondary School, St Cuthbert Mayne Primary, Cranleigh Church of England Primary and Park Mead Primary donated a record number of shoe boxes filled with Christmas gifts.

The collection was organised by the Rotary Club of Cranleigh on behalf of Task Force Romania (TFR).

This year, 550 shoe boxes were sent to deprived and disabled children who live in and around the old Romanian steel town of Hunedoara and who are unlikely to have any other presents at Christmas.

The shoe boxes will be distributed by the local partners of TFR, who live in Hunedoara and founded the Betel Centre, which is a Christian social centre in the town.

Pictured here are pupils from Park Mead Junior School with their collection of shoe boxes.
