Skipton Craven Rotary Club seeks to expand Shelterbox campaign
9:00am Sunday 16th February 2014 in News
Schools and community groups are being invited to help fund temporary homes for people hit by disasters in developing countries.
The charity Shelterbox provides the kits, costing £590 each, containing a tent and essential equipment such as a stove, water purifier and tools.
Skipton Craven Rotary Club wants to recruit more schools to raise money for the innovative Shelterboxes.
The club has worked with 23 schools in Craven and the Yorkshire Dales over the past three years to raise money for 17 Shelterboxes.
The Rotary Club now wants to expand its campaign to include schools and groups in the Keighley and Silsden area.
Anyone interested in helping should contact George Garland on 01535 633968.
