Sidmouth Waitrose has agreed to a ShelterBox collection for Pakistan’s flood victims
A COLLECTION on behalf of ShelterBox will take place at Waitrose, Sidmouth, on Saturday to aid those whose homes have been destroyed by the floods in Pakistan.
Members from Sid Valley Rotary Club will carry out the collection on behalf of ShelterBox, which is currently providing emergency shelter for the flood victims.

Aid Agencies estimate that more than three million have been affected by Pakistan’s worse floods in 80 years.
