Helston-based disaster relief charity ShelterBox have been kept busy helping residents displaced by flooding across the county in recent weeks.

ShelterBox response teams were on site in Lostwithiel before Christmas helping to co-ordinate replacement accommodation for flood-hit homeowners including a man and his disabled mother who needed to be moved to the home of another resident who had made space for them.

The charity had eight tents on standby in the town, which fortunately were not needed as the local community rallied round to provide accommodation for those evacuated.

Glad to see Shelter Box are keeping up the good work.
I bought one of their charity bracelet things that were featured on the Packet website a while ago, available at Top Shop, I ordered it on line, it was supposed to be pink with a star on it, and said pink on the packet it was in, however, the star was deformed and far from being pink the little bit of string stuff it is on resembles the two colours on a police car.
I don't mind because it is for charity,
I think if they improved on them though more people may buy them.
