Our President received a letter of thanks from Tony Quinn, Chairman of Rotary Humanitarian Projects, thanking the club for their cheque for 500 towards the Rotary Hurricane IRMA appeal.
Tony stated that they are very grateful to clubs like ours for helping them contribute to support people who have lost everything, he continued: 'The current situation is that we have 500 boxes ready to be flown to the Caribbean and until 2 days ago (1st Oct 2017) we had plans to send them to St Croix via the District 7020 Rotary Disaster Committee for onward distribution to several islands in the vicinity. Unfortunately, Hurricane Marie hit the island yesterday and we are awaiting news about the state of the airport and warehousing.
Your donation is very much appreciated and will help us replenish the stock we are sending. I have no doubt that we will continue to send boxes to the Caribbean for some time yet'
Tony ask the President to thank members on his behalf.
As a result of our funding a Water Box a matching anonymous donation has been made to send, in addition, a Shelter Box for the hurricane disaster in the Club's name.
