Sutton’s Rotary Club has been drumming up support for survivors in the Philippines.

Rotarians have so far sent one ShelterBox and one Aquabox to help some of the worst affected areas by providing water, tents, clothing, blankets and cooking utensils to victims.

Each box cost just under £400 and contains vital survival equipment for the coming months.

John Bates, president of the club, said: “The boxes will be used to provide long term and sustainable support for survivors of the typhoon. Rotary members are mobilising to raise funds, make donations and help in any way that they can.”
