A group from the Inner Wheel Club of Crewkerne travelled to the headquarters of World Water Works to help the Chelwood Bridge Rotarians and their regular volunteers to fill an allocated number of Water Survival Boxes. World Water Works and the Water Survival Box is a charity run by the Rotary Club of Chelwood Bridge and supported by local RIBI clubs. Rotary Internationals water survival boxes are sent to disaster areas all over the world, to help with sanitation and survival following extreme weather conditions, earthquakes, other destructive forces of nature and wars.
Each water survival box includes a rigid 54 litre plastic container that becomes a receptacle for water when emptied, a filtration pack which includes a pump, filter and chlorine tablets plus other essential survival items and a basic shelter for a family, in the form of a tarpaulin sheet. The Inner Wheel ladies from Crewkerne were shown on a map where the boxes they had packed would be heading and how they were funded. Before returning home, the group enjoyed a hot lunch while watching snow flurries come down on a nearby golf course.
