Laurencekirk Primary School collected an impressive 122 shoeboxes for the Rotary Shoebox Appeal.

P6/7 teacher Elaine Easton and her class were keen to support the appeal, which sees shoeboxes filled with toys, toiletries, educational items or household goods and sent to needy people in Eastern Europe.

They were soon joined in their efforts by the entire school and nursery and soon exceeded their target of 100 boxes. The children of P6/7 and P3 worked hard to make and decorate the boxes andthen fill them with all of the generous contributions donated by the school community. The boxes were filled for babies, young children, teenagers and families. The boxes were collected by former head teacher and Rotarian Mrs Isobel Smith and Rotary Chairperson Mr Bill Brown who were delighted.
