Members of The Rotary Club of Horsham, ably assisted by members of Horsham Inner Wheel, organised a collection in Horsham town centre last week in aid of the Nepal earthquake appeal.
An amazing £1,150 was collected in a four hour period and Horsham Rotary Club would like to thank the people of Horsham for their generosity.
Once again the people of Horsham have shown their desire to help people in need and have allowed us to make a good contribution to the disaster appeal. The staff and pupils at Forest School are holding a collection this week that they will send to us to add to the monies already raised.
All monies raised will be used to supply the people of Nepal with Shelter Boxes.
Shelter Box is a charity supported by Rotary that provides emergency shelter and vital supplies to support communities around the world overwhelmed by disaster and humanitarian crisis.
Anyone who was not able to give to the collection we held in the town centre can still send donations for the Nepal appeal to us. Please go to our website and use the contact us facility to leave your details and we will reply to you with information on how to contribute.
President, The Rotary Club of Horsham, Greens Lane, Mannings Heath
