In the end the very excellent Help For Haiti raised £14,167 which will pay for at least 28 of the near 10,000 ShelterBoxes so far sent to Haiti providing shelter and home for some 100,000 people ... something to be proud of.

A ShelterBox is just that, a big plastic trunk containing a tent for 10, blankets, water filtration, cooking pots, tools and colouring books and crayons for the kids to get life started again. To pay for more ShelterBoxes Juan Romero organised Help For Haiti at Framlingham College last night. A cracking bun fight where we saw Space Cakes and the Low House Blues Band cranking it out (Derek said he'd earlier really enjoyed Laura Wright singing classical to piano accompaniment), the Dragoman donated holiday in South America went for some £1,400 in the auction and the bar was just about drunk dry of Earl Soham Brewery donated beer (we just managed to get some Tolly Roger). All of this means over £10,000, very possibly over £12,000 was raised; that's at least 20 ShelterBoxes, 200 people seriously helped, and by god those poor souls in Haiti need and deserve help.

Saw on tv last night that the only significant temporary housing in Haiti are ShelterBoxes supplied by UK Rotarians ... and an older lady who'd had a leg amputated, had no medical supplies and hadn't eaten for four days.
