CHARITABLE volunteers from Gosport have sent emergency supplies to an Indian state following a natural disaster.

Members of the Rotary Club of Gosport have pulled together to send a shelterbox and four aqua boxes to Kerala, a state on the Indian coast, after a deadly flood struck the area last month.

With the help of Rotary Business Partners subscriptions and money raised by members, Kerala’s residents have been given a tent for ten people cooking equipment, heating, blankets, tools to help rebuild accommodation and to help with growing produce.

The aqua boxes also include clean drinking water.
