of devastation in the Philippines following Typhoon Haiyan that
they had to help.

Typoon Disaster Appeal.

towards the appeal, helping the Rotary Club fund water survival
boxes and shelter boxes for those affected.
Chairman Rita Jolliffe, along with members of the Burnham-On-Sea
club, have thanked customers for the generous donations.
Haiyan left a huge amount of devastation across the Philippines
and the official death toll stands at more than 5,200, but it
is feared this could rise much higher.

collecting funds for the disaster appeal in recent days.
