Shelterbox recognises Rotary Club of Guernsey support (29 August 2023)

The Club becomes a Shelterbox Bronze Partner Club

Email received from John Cleverly of Shelterbox 29 August:


As a celebration of all your activities in the past Rotary year, I wanted to offer my thanks on behalf of ShelterBox for the amazing fundraising that you have carried out with your community and as a club.

According to our records, the Rotary Club of Guernsey has raised a total of £2,400 in Rotary year 2022/2023.

Congratulations on becoming a Bronze Partner Club!

We have been bowled over by the support from clubs fundraising in response to the terrible earthquakes in Türkiye and Syria in February. So many of you were out in your local shops and streets collecting donations, running fundraising events and contributing from your club’s funds. To say thank you and to acknowledge the efforts from clubs across the country, we have started a new way to recognise your support, called Partner Clubs.

A Partner Club is a Rotary club that supports our work in disaster relief by donating over £2,000 in a Rotary year. There are four Partner Club levels, linked to how much you donate: Bronze - £2,000; Silver - £4,000; Gold - £6,000, and Platinum - £10,000.

Your club is listed on our webpage, where you can find out more about ShelterBox Partner Clubs:

Your partnership has meant that we can support people like Nürgul, who was affected by the earthquakes in Türkiye. “When I get in my tent and zip it up, I feel relieved. When there is no tent, the coffee I drink is not coffee. But here... my coffee tastes like coffee.”

Thank you again for your continued support of our vital work to ensure that no-one is left without shelter after disaster. It’s only thanks to generous individuals and clubs such as yourselves that we can make the necessary commitment to supporting communities as they recover and rebuild their lives.

We hope to enjoy an ongoing and impactful partnership with your club into the future.

With best wishes,
