Not a new relief tent but he ShelterBox stand at Bluesfest 24!

ShelterBox had a presence at the Byron Bluesfest for the second year running, meeting up with some old friends and making lots of new ones. The stand had plenty of visits from Rotarians from all over Australia and New Zealand and even one family originally from near Helston, the birthplace of ShelterBox. The annual event, one of the world’s premier music festivals, attracted 81,000 to the Tyagarah site over the 5 days of Bluesfest and provided a great platform for the promotion of ShelterBox and many other good causes.

Although the purpose stand was primarily to inform the public, donations were gladly accepted and a phone charging service provided. Enough money was raised to buy a ShelterBox and those that contributed will be able to track the Bluesfest box on-line when it is allocated.

Phone recharging system in action ..... trust me, there is a method!

I’d like to thank festival organiser Peter Noble and charity stalls coördinator, Shelley Sellors for having us at the festival again. Thanks also to all those that paid us a visit and donated, and all the wonderful artists and performers that made it such a memorable experience.
