Ninfield Carnival - Shelterbox

Ninfield Carnival - Saturday 14th July

Following on from my time with the Ninfield Beavers in January when the Beavers raised nearly £350 for ShelterBox I was invited to bring ShelterBox to the local Ninfield Carnival on Saturday 14thJuly. It was a warm day and a relief when I found the beer tent mid-afternoon! I chatted to a number of people, some in more depth, about ShelterBox and Rotary’s connection and as a result two organisations have said they will give serious thought to choosing ShelterBox as a recipient from their fund raising activities. When I took over as co-ordinator for the club I inherited a coffee service, the ownership of which I couldn’t trace; I used it as a raffle prize and as a consequence, together with donations, the event raised £45, enough to buy a Shelter Kit.
My thanks to Ninfield Scout Group for the invite and their help setting up and taking down the tent.
