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.
As some of you will know from following our earlier post, the Shelterbox board was built from a large piece of driftwood that washed up on Perranporth beach and some reclaimed Cedar cladding from Redruth School. The board was then glassed using the most eco-friendly resin available, Entropy Resin.
We had a great afternoon with Mark and John from Shelterbox who kindly showed us round and let us watch their little video showing all the great work the charity do. We were stoked to find out that the £1200 the board raised would be enough to buy two Shelterbox boxes which is epic because the boxes are full of essential survival items and the big tents can house up to 20 people!
We got a couple of mug shots for a local press release so keep your peepers pealed for Driftwood hopefully making some headlines.
Oh and here’s one more pic of the board…
