Walk for Shelter Box- September 2018

In late September 2018 club members and supporters walked 10km across north London to raise funds for ShelterBox.

ShelterBox is a charity that hand-delivers aid to families devastated by conflict or natural disaster, to give them safe shelter and the tools to rebuild communities. When natural disasters and conflicts occur, the ShelterBox operations team make careful assessments to ensure that ShelterBox aid is right for the situation. They consider the type of disaster and the level of damage, as well as the needs of the community and their ability to recover, before selecting the right type of support. ShelterBox are then able to quickly transport items from their positioned hubs around the world to exactly where it is needed.
