Become part of Team ShelterBox by running in the Bath Half Marathon and raise funds for emergency shelter.

Right now, around 85 million people around the world have been made homeless by natural disaster and conflict. We’re working to change this.  By providing emergency shelter and tools for families robbed of their homes by disaster, we’re transforming despair into hope.  We are impatient to see a world where no family is left without shelter. Are you?

We deliver the essentials people need to begin rebuilding their lives in the aftermath of a disaster.

Each disaster is different, and so is every community. We don’t believe that one size fits all, so we make considered assessments to provide the exact support that gives people the hope and the power to transform their own lives.

The aid we supply comes in the form of ShelterBoxes and ShelterKits. Our sturdy green ShelterBoxes contain family-sized tents specially designed to withstand the elements and provide people with temporary shelter until they are able to start the process of rebuilding a home. Our ShelterKits contain all of the essential tools people need to start repairing and rebuilding homes straight away.

That’s not all. We know that a home is much more than bricks and mortar or tarpaulin and tent pegs. Our kits and boxes contain the items that help transform shelter into a home, like cooking sets, solar lights and activity sets for children.

 

You can help us to support families across the globe by taking part in the Bath Half Marathon to raise funds for ShelterBox.

Registration for a ShelterBox place costs just £54 (inc VAT) and we ask that you pledge to raise a minimum of £175 for ShelterBox.
