Buddy Bags Project

thumbnail 20210409_154650

In early April President Kathryn Gregory arranged for five members of Wreake Valley Rotary Club to gather in a “socially distanced” outdoor way in order to fill thirty backpacks known as “Buddy Bags”. 

 Each bag contains the essential items a child needs when they enter emergency care. Items such as toiletries, pyjamas, socks and underwear were provided by club members. The bags also include comfort items such as a reading and colouring books, crayons and a teddy bear. A “Buddy Bag” is something a child can call their own, no matter where they go.

The UK Buddy Bag Foundation was founded by Karen Williams in 2015. It’s mission is ‘to commit 100% of money raised to supply children going into emergency care with essential items”.  

 The photo shows Kathryn with a Buddy Bag and contents.

Our Santa sleigh will be touring the areas listed below the sleigh photograph subject to weather conditions. Please come out to wave at Santa, perhaps take a selfie with him, and place a charity donation in one of our sealed collection boxes. Your support will be greatly appreciated and will be given to mostly local charities. All Rotarians are volunteers so there are no administration costs.
