In response to the typhoon disaster in the Philippines, where the human cost is on truly epic proportions, The Nicolson Institute Interact Club have taken some important decisions this week.
The Club have organised the purchase of two Shelter Boxes from their club funds and these are already on their way to the Philippines.
Each box contains a ten man ten, stove, water purification system, sleeping bags, insulated ground sheet, medical supplies and much much more.
A Shelter Box costs £570, and the Club would like to raise enough money to purchase a third box to send to the Philippines.
Tomorrow night, Saturday, November 16th, the Club will hold a fund-raising Family Quiz Night (children welcome) in St Columba’s Church Hall, Stornoway.
The evening starts at 7.30pm and everyone is welcome, the Club would appreciate as many participants as possible.
All monies raised will be going to provide emergency aid for Philippines Disaster (Typhoon Haiyan Appeal, Shelter Box).
