FANTASTIC COLLECTION FOR SHELTER BOXES

Thu 1st December 2016 at 12.00 am -

One of our members had a rather special birthday a short while ago and held a rather special event to celebrate it. He declined presents or publicity but suggested donations for Shelterbox. A total of £2,200 was raised - enough to buy FOUR Shelterboxers

Shelter is more than just a roof – it’s a home. It’s the foundation for life, for families, for communities.

Our sturdy green ShelterBoxes are designed to help people who have lost everything. They are filled with practical tools and utensils that help to create the framework for everyday life.

Each contains a family-sized tent that protects people from the elements and provides a safe space in which people can start to recover from physical and emotional trauma.

The contents differ depending on the disaster and the climate, but items such as solar lights, water storage and purification equipment, thermal blankets and cooking utensils help start the process of creating a home


When natural disasters and conflicts rob people of their homes, we can’t wave a magic wand to replace what was lost, but we can help create something new. We can provide people with the tools to start the process of their own recovery.

The charity provides shelter that protects families from burning heat, bitter cold, dangerous animals and disease, and so much more. A shelter creates a space where families can have privacy from the rest of the world, where they can feel safety and security in being together..
