Saturday 22nd September at Crawfordsburn saw the final episode of the District’s support for Shelterbox, SE Antrim’s nominated charity for 2017 – 2018.
Sheldon Hinds accepted the cheque on behalf of Shelterbox. Sheldon is the husband of Nicola Hinds who has been our contact with Shelterbox. Nicola is currently on deployment in Kenya.
Scout Groups in the District raised enough money to purchase and equip two Shelterboxes. Consider this in human terms . . . two families who had nothing but the clothes they stood in now will have the means of creating a new home; shelter, warmth, cooking facilities and children can continue with their education.
All Shelterboxes have a serial number so we may be able to identify where ‘our boxes’ are used.
