On Thursday 17 December 2015 a group of people packed a container to send to Freetown, Sierra Leone. Three charities, Police Aid Convoys, The David School and Street Child sent 130 bikes, clothing, equipment and health supplies.
This work was completed in Retford with the help of Local Rotarians and representatives of the charities. It took two hours to complete before the container went by lorry to Doncaster railway station and then by rail to Southampton. The ship is due to arrive early in the second week of January 2016.
The School will receive 30 donated bikes to be used by senior pupils who currently walk for two hours to get to school. In addition seven boxes of soap, toothpaste and other health supplies will be delivered to school.
