The town’s Rotary Club are taking a collection at Tesco this Saturday for the Philippines Appeal, the proceeds of which will go to Shelterbox.
This is an emergency box providing a special tent shelter for up to 10 people, water, cooking utensils, sleeping bags etc. The Rotary Club has already sent £1189 to provide two Shelterboxes and hope Newtonians will help provide more. If you miss the Tesco collection please donate cash at Newton Press offices or Don Walkers Butchers at Simpasturegate.
