Gary Pretty, Chairman of the Project has been very lucky to get a palette load of pencils from another Rotary Club. These have been given from a famous pencil manufacturer as seconds and are to be given to schools in third world countries.
“There are 20 boxes, each containing approximately 4000 pencils. I would like to send these to The Gambia at the end of this year in a container so that they will arrive when I hope to be there at end of Jan/Feb next year and I can then distribute them to the schools where we have sponsored children and any other needy schools that would benefit from them. I am looking for anyone who would like to sponsor a box or two to be shipped. It will cost about £20 per box. This will enable us to use other funds we have raised this year to finish building our school. Please contact me if you can help in any way.”
