Harvest Festival Weekend — All are Welcome
(United Reformed Church, Wiltown)
Saturday 30th September 2017
Charity Lunch: Ploughman's & Pudding 12 noon — 2pm in the URC Hall (behind the Chapel).
The chosen charity this year is Shelterbox (www.shelterbox.org) which seeks to provide emergency
shelter and tools for families robbed of their homes by disaster.
The Charity's ethos is that shelter is a human right and shelter from chaos and conflict is vital. The 'Shelter' they provide worldwide comes in the shape of a large green box containing a tent, water purification kit, blankets, tools etc — tailored to suit the nature and
location of the disaster. A guided tour of the headquarters a few years ago, whilst boxes were being packed in response to a disaster in Pakistan working to a deadline for collection, revealed a conveyor belt of military precision with the last volunteer in the
line sitting on the lid of the box to ensure it closed tightly!
Saturday's lunch is free — we simply request a donation in lieu which will go toward funding shelter in a box.
