Oswestry, United Kingdom, May 21, 2015 –(PR.com)– North Shropshire College (NSC) Business Students and Rotary Interact club members have taken part in their very own Superhero Day to help raise vital funds for Shelter Box. The students were moved to action by the earthquake in Nepal, they wanted to do something to help and decided to use the recently formed Interact club of Oswestry Cambrian Rotary as the vehicle to drive a fundraising campaign.
To kickstart their day, the students were supported by Oswestry Cambrian Rotary President Mike Lade who set them the challenge of building a Shelter Box tent in the main reception of NSC’s Oswestry Campus. The students got to experience first-hand the vital equipment inside the boxes, grasping the importance of the contents to aid survival. The second part of the day involved a bake sale, which sold out.
The students tutor, Head of Business Studies Sarah Probert, commented,‘” am extremely proud of the efforts of the business students and I am particularly struck by their desire to help those less fortunate. I look forward to supporting their further fundraising activities.”
The charity, Shelter Box, provides emergency shelter and vital supplies to support communities around the world overwhelmed by disaster and humanitarian crisis. Shelter Box aid is tailored to a disaster but typically includes a disaster relief tent for a family, thermal blankets and groundsheets, water storage and purification equipment, solar lamps, cooking utensils, a basic tool kit, mosquito nets and children’s activity pack.
