We recently popped down to Shelterbox HQ in Helston to hand over the long awaited surfboard that had been raffled at the Shelterbox Christmas ball back in December.
The lucky winner of the board was Louie Bowers, a graphic designer from London, and she was amped when she found out.
Its been a rough year, in which Mother Nature has battered the world we live in: from the largest hurricane in history hitting America to Tsunamis in Japan and Earthquakes in New Zealand. Throughout all these disasters, Shelterbox has continued to give assistance where its needed, when its needed, day or night all around the globe.
I’m delighted to give a little to help such a great cause. I will be building a surfboard from a driftwood log washed up on Perranporth beach several years ago, along with some reclaimed cedar cladding from an aged building recently taken down in a Redruth school yard. Feel free to follow the board being built from scratch on this blog.
The board will be shaped by myself David Forsyth founder of Driftwood Surfboards. The board will finally be raffled with all proceeds donated to Shelterbox.
Stay tuned to find out what the finished boards look like once they’ve had a nice lick of glass…
