We have all seen too many distressing news stories about disasters around the world - natural and man-made. ShelterBoxes give clubs and individual Rotarians a way to directly help people in desparate need.

See full details at www.shelterbox.org. Each ShelterBox typically contains:

  • a tent designed to withstand extreme weather conditions
  • water purification kit
  • blankets, tools and other necessities to help a family survive after a disaster.
  • The contents of a ShelterBox are tailored to the nature and location of the disaster.

This year we have the target of providing 100 shelter boxes, and there will be a presentation by ShelterBox at the District Conference 22-24th March 2019 at Grange over Sands.

There will be the opportunity to be sponsored to sleep in a ShelterBox tent at the Conference! If you are interested please contact DG Mary Bradley.
