ShelterBox let visitors lift the lid on its aid work on Saturday when it offered a behind the scenes look at its Helston headquarters.
Over the course of four hours supporters could see how aid is delivered to disaster front lines around the world through displays, activities, exhibitions and entertainment for all the family.
They could see at first hand the specialist equipment used, tour the warehouse and look at the conveyor belt where ShelterBoxes are packed and loaded by teams of volunteers.
People could then track weather systems and earthquakes in the operations department and meet some of the ShelterBox response teams members who oversee the delivery of boxes.
For children there was face painting and storytelling, plus birds of prey on display from Ancient Art Falconry and stands from Origin Coffee, the Big Fat Cake Company, the Pasty Line and Home Street Food for all.
