Hurricane Kit

On Saturday 16th September, members of the Rotary Club of Langport and Somerton raised over £550 to help those affected in the Carribean by Hurricane 'Irma'.

Members were 'Shaking their Buckets' outside Tesco in Langport, and Williams supermarket in Somerton to raise this fantastic amount. All monies collected will be used to send 'Water Survival Boxes' to the worst affected areas in the Caribbean.

The box contains approx 50 essential items including a Shelter & Survival kit, Health & Hygiene, and General Household items. One key item in the box is the Water Purification Pump, that cleans and purifies dirty water and provides clean drinking water. 'Water Survival Boxes' cost £150 each.

The Rotary Club of Langport & Somerton would like to thank everyone who gave so generously to the bucket collection. In recent days 500 'Water Survival Boxes' have been sent to the worst affected areas in the Carribean.

The Rotary meet on Thursdays at 6.30pm, The Langport Arms, Cheapside, Langport, TA10 9PD.If you would like to find out more about the good work that Rotary are doing both Internationally and locally in our Community then please go to: www.langportandsomertonrotary.org
