FHS Supports Shelter Box

Harry (Year 9) mobilised the support of the FHS community behind his fundraising efforts to support Shelter Box, a charity which provides valuable support to communities devastated by natural disasters. Harry was inspired to get involved having learned how his Geography teacher, Mr Gallagher, sadly lost a childhood friend in the Nepal earthquakes. Shelter Box provided thousands of families affected by the devastating earthquakes with ShelterKits full of materials to mend and create shelters and showed the community how to use the kits in a variety of ways to build back safer homes – homes that will be more resilient to future quakes. The charity has helped almost 68,000 people left homeless after the Nepal earthquakes. They are keen to note, however, that their work never stops – disasters and conflict around the world mean that there are families in need of shelter 365 days a year. Thanks to the wonderful support from the FHS community who supported fundraising events, including delicious cake sales, the charity has a further £645.79 to continue their excellent work. This is the real meaning of community and we are extremely proud of the generosity and compassion shown by the FHS community. Thank you to everyone for their support.
