The wonderful ShelterBox Ambassador team in WA combined with Scouts to raise funds and awareness at the Royal Perth Show last week. The Scouts Challenge Zone encourages young people to take part in some physical activities and get involved with Scouting. At the invitation of Scouts WA, ShelterBox was again invited to have presence at the stand. ShelterBox WA Coordinator, David Brockway and his team of Ambassadors manned the display for a full 5 days.

The show offered a great opportunity to educate people about ShelterBox and disaster relief and raise some much-needed funds. With the help of a new money spinner, the group raised a fantastic $2,516.20 ….. and £1! Enough to fund 2 1/12 ShelterBoxes. Our thanks go out to all that helped and donated and to WA Chief Commissioner of Scouts, Larry Lucas for inviting us along again.
