BONDS between the people in the Okehampton area and those in Romania were strengthened by the recent dispatch of gift boxes made up by members of the Ladies? League of St Boniface Church, Okehampton.

Sixteen boxes were sent, containing such things as bandages, pins, socks and glove and many other items that are vital to families that have nothing. The boxes, filled through Lent, will be delivered by volunteers who take them to rural communities.
