SIDBURY youngsters have been learning more about Shelterbox.

Ray Davies, representing the disaster relief charity, visited Sidbury C of E Primary School on Monday.

Pupils got first hand experience of what goes into the boxes and how they help people in difficult situations all over the world.

Ray also told them about how they can get involved by joining in the ‘money box challenge’. For instance, Key Stage 1 could try the biscuit baking challenge, baking biscuits and selling the results, while Key Stage 2 could undertake the Home Poem Challenge. For more information about the charity and challenge visit www.shelterbox.org.
