Event this Saturday to raise money for families in Wandsworth
Putney Rotary Club is hosting a fundraising quiz via Zoom this Saturday 21 November to raise funds for 100 families in Wandsworth. They are planning to send out Gift Boxes this festive season.
It is taking place from 4pm to 6pm via Zoom.
A spokesperson for the Rotary Club said, “This holiday season, especially as Covid-19 has hit our community hard, our members have come up with a heart-warming project to benefit children in the Wandsworth area.
“We’re working in partnership with Roehampton BASE, a Wandsworth Council Youth Club, and the Wandsworth Boxing Club to create and distribute the gift boxes to bring hope and kindness to families who're struggling at this time.
“We're also looking for donations from our wonderful community of shops/friends/neighbours, so please let us know if you can donate toys, games, puzzles, books, toiletries, socks & gloves, stationery, diaries & notebooks, paint & art supplies, colouring-in books, make-up bags, pencil cases, woolly hats and food (nuts, cookies, mince pies) and stocking fillers to help us achieve our mission.”
