PUPILS in the district have been honoured as Rotary Stars.
Olivia and Alfie Cartwright from Radford Semele Primary school , Ronnie May Mcintyre from St Joseph’s Primary in Whitnash and Ebony Pierce from Whitnash Primary were all recognised for their efforts to pack Rotary shoeboxes for less fortunate children in eastern Europe.
Sue Melville, who nominated the pupils said: “ It is so lovely for these young people to be recognised for just being kind and caring.”
Sue has been filling Rotary shoeboxes for many years for children in eastern Europe including the Ukraine ‘sending love in a box’ has always been her slogan.
Local Rotarian Margaret Morley went to each of the schools to present a certificate and Badge to the young people.
Margaret said: “It is so lovely for Rotary to be able to recognise young people for acts of kindness, but we are dependent on schools and members of the public to nominate these young people.
“We are now looking forward to recognising young people for their efforts especially connected with the crisis in the Ukraine.”
